Analytical Sample Bundle Metadata


GSC-NC-1999- A4 Kimberlite Ontario; Till, Kimberlite samples: GSC Electron Microprobe

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

Kimberlite indicator mineral grains picked by Lakefield Research/Overburden Drilling Management from the A4 kimberlite collected in 1993 were analysed by electron microprobe with the DIAMOND and OXIDE routines at the GSC to confirm their mineral identities. The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) was used to identify irregularities in grains and to identify grains before probing.

These data are published in GSC Open File 3769.
