GSC-NC-1998- Diamond Lake Kimberlite, Ontario; Till, Glaciofluvial and Kimberlite samples: Lakefield Research IM Picking

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

Till/glaciofluvial and kimberlite/bedrock samples collected by the GSC and Sudbury Contact Mines from the Diamond Lake kimberlite were picked by Lakefield Research for the kimberlite indicator minerals pyrope, ilmenite, chrome diopside, and chromite. The samples were sieved into 0.25-0.5 mm, 0.5-1.0 mm and 1-2 mm fractions and picked, polished and mounted for electron microprobe analysis. .

Indicator mineral data are published in GSC Open File 3576.
