Integrated geological studies in the Central Zone of the Limpopo Complex formed the basis for the construction of a composite deformation (D)–pressure (P)– temperature (T)–time (t) (D-P-T-t) diagram that shows the following: First, in the Neoarchean the Central Zone probably underwent high-pressure (HP) (P >14 kbar, T ~950 °C) conditions followed by near isothermal decompression to ultrahigh- temperature conditions (UHT) (T ~1000 °C, P ~10 kbar), before ca. 2.68 Ga. Second, the post-peak exhumation history linked to two distinct decompression cooling stages commenced at ca. 2.68 Ga and ended before the emplacement of the Bulai Pluton at ca. 2.61 Ga....
