International Kimberlite meetings (IKCs) are designated occasions which are held internationally as soon as in 4 to 5 years. IKC is the confluence platform for academicians, scientists and commercial group of workers focused on diamond exploration and exploitation, petrology, geochemistry, geochronology, geophysics and starting place of the first diamond host rocks and their entrained xenoliths and xenocrysts (including diamond) to celebration and planned on new advances in learn made within the intervening years. Ever because the association of first IKC in 1973 and its large good fortune, the complete geological global eagerly look ahead to next such meetings with nice enthusiasm and pleasure. The medical emanations from IKCs proceed to make major influence on our realizing of the composition, nature and evolution of the planet we are living on. the former meetings have been held at Cape city (1973), Santa Fe, New Mexico (1977), Clermont-Ferrand, France, (1982), Perth, Western Australia (1987), Araxa, Brazil (1991), Novosibirsk, Russia (1995), Cape city (1998), Victoria, Canada (2003) and Frankfurt, Germany (2008). The tenth IKC used to be held at Bangalore, India among fifth and eleventh February 2012. The convention was once equipped by way of the Geological Society of India in organization with the govt. agencies, educational associations and Indian diamond mining businesses. approximately three hundred delegates from 36 nations attended the convention and 224 papers have been provided. The papers comprise seventy eight oral displays and 146 poster shows on following issues: Kimberlite geology, beginning, evolution and emplacement of kimberlites and similar rocks, petrology and geochemistry of metasomatised lithospheric mantle magmas, diamond exploration, cratonic roots, diamonds, diamond mining and sustainable advancements and rules and governance of diamond exploration. Pre- and post-conference box journeys have been equipped to (i) the diamond bearing kimberlites of Dharwar Craton in South India, (ii) lamproites of Bundelkhand Craton in northern India and (iii) diamond slicing and sharpening of Surat, Gujarat in western India. a chain of social and cultural programmes depicting cultural range of India have been geared up throughout the convention. The Kimberlite fraternity loved one more socially and scientifically profitable conference.

An objective of this study is to compare the Letseng xenolith suite with that from Thaba Putsoa, Lesotho, from which a perturbed geothermal gradient has been inferred with implications for major frictional heating at the base of the Kalahari craton (Boyd 1973a). General Geology The two pipes (Fig. 1) are separated by basalt wall rock that forms abundant xenoliths in both pipes.

In KL-1, the fO2 values generally rise upward, as in South African lithosphere (McCammon et al. 2001), and the highest heterogeneity similar to most studied mantle sections (Ashchepkov et al. 2011, 2013) including Iron Mountain SCLM. In the Eocene mantle, the peridotite minerals are more 20 I. V. Ashchepkov et al. 0 Fig. 7 PTX fO2 diagrams for xenocrysts of the Vendian Chicken Park kimberlite pipe (a).
