Analytical Sample Bundle Metadata


GSC-NC-1995-Buffonta Kimberlite Ontario; Till samples: OGS Electron Microprobe

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

Indicator mineral grains picked by Lakefield Research from the Buffonta kimberlite collected in 1993 were analysed by electron microprobe at the OGS 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 3007.
