The results of 50 years of geochronological work in the Limpopo Complex are reviewed. The data define three main age clusters. The oldest, at ca. 3.3 Ga, exists in the Central and Southern Marginal Zones and is defined by magmatic zircon dates. The second, with a genuine spread between 2.7 and 2.55 Ga, occurs in all three zones. It was a period of high-grade regional metamorphism with intense deformation and widespread anatexis, dated also mainly (but not exclusively) by zircon U-Pb. The third cluster is well constrained at 2.02 ± 0.02 Ga in the Central Zone by zircon overgrowths, sparse...
