GSC-NC-1995-Buffonta Kimberlite Ontario; Till samples: ODM HMC separation and sorting

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

57 till samples collected in 1992 from the Buffonta Kimberlite were sent to Overburden Drilling Management, Ottawa, Ontario; picked for gold grains and processed for heavy mineral concentrates (HMC) and sorted. The < 1 mm sieved fraction was separated using the table shaker and methylene iodide (S.G.3.2); the 1-2 mm fraction was separated only using methylene iodide (S.G. 3.2).

Grain separation data and indicator mineral are published in GSC Open File 3007.
