Abstract

Kimberlite magmatism is widespread across the Siberian Craton. Kimberlite pipes are not only economically important, but also provide samples of the lower crust and underlying subcontinental lithospheric mantle (SCLM) across the Craton. U-Pb and Lu-Hf isotopic systematics were studied in zircons from kimberlitic fields across the Craton. Preliminary results indicate the presence of an Archean crust under the eastern part of the Craton, which was previously suggested to be Proterozoic.
