Published whole-rock Sm-Nd and zircon Lu-Hf data from the Limpopo Complex and adjoining areas of the Zimbabwe and Kaapvaal Cratons provide insight into the regional crustal evolution and tectonic processes that shaped the complex.

The Northern Marginal Zone of the complex, and the Francistown area of the Zimbabwe craton, represent an accretionary margin (active at 2.6–2.7 Ga) at the southern edge of that craton, at deep and shallow crustal levels, respectively. The Southern Marginal Zone represents a deep crustal level of the northern Kaapvaal Craton and was not an accretionary margin at the time of high-grade metamorphism (2.72–2.65 Ga). The...
