      Data on kimberlite locations from Botswana, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland and Namibia, yielding a total , spatial relationships (not shown here) have been analysed. Also the distribution off-craton is compared with that on-craton, to determine possible variations in tectonic controls on kimberlite location. There are off-craton and on-craton kimberlites yielding, respectively, Cited by:   McCandless, T. E. & Ruiz, J.

      The Archaean geology of the Kaapvaal Craton, Southern Africa. [A Kröner; Axel Hofmann;] -- This book provides a comprehensive overview of the evolution of one of the oldest and best-exposed Archaean cratons on this planet. South Africa’s architecture is defined by a multicultural history. Located at the southernmost tip of the continent, the county has built upon past traditions and building techniques in a range.
