AbstractMantle-derived ultramafic xenoliths from the Batty Bay kimberlite complex consist predominantly of garnet and garnet + spinel lherzolites. Coarse textures are more prevalent than porphyroclastic textures in these xenoliths. The pressures and temperatures of equilibration of twenty-one lherzolite xenoliths are consistent with a 44mW!m2 steady-state shield paleogeotherm. The geotherm is not inflected, and no correlation exists between xenolith textural type and pressure and temperature of equilibration. Three of the twenty-one xenoliths equilibrated in the diamond stability field.
