Unfortunately, the tick marks of the picrite-crust mixing lines in Fig. 5 have been plotted erroneously. As a result, the correct value of crustal component is < ca. 5% at Tati (not <10–20% as stated in the text) and > ca 5% at Phikwe-Dikoloti (as opposed to >10–20%).

Binary variation diagram of a Th/Yb vs Ta/Yb and b Th/Yb vs La/Sm for Tati and Selebi-Phikwe samples with low to intermediate sulfide contents. Fields of oceanic island arcs and active continental margins in a are from Pearce (1983). Composition of average upper crust is from Taylor and McLennan (1985), model picrite from Arndt et al. (1993), Mauna Loa, Kilauea, Deccan, Parana and Greenland lavas from Wilson (1989), and Bushveld magnesian basalt from Barnes and Maier (2002). Mixing lines between upper crust and picrite have been calculated assuming bulk mixing
