GSC NGR-2005-Horn Plateau 85E, F, K and L and 95 H,I and J Stream Sediment: GSC electron microprobe analysis

Type: lab data



Bundle Description

The candidate kimberlite indicator mineral grains that were picked by ODM from 326 stream sediment samples collected in 2005 from Horn Plateau Area were analysed by electron microprobe for 17 major and minor elements at the GSC to confirm their identities. The ZAF correction program of Armstrong (1988) was used in processing the data. Classification of probed minerals KIM grains was aided by I. Kjarsgaard and garnet identification is based on Gruetter (2004).

The data are published in GSC Open File 5478.
