Bundle Description

Indicator mineral grains were picked from the > 250 μm fraction of the non-ferromagnetic fraction of the heavy mineral concentrate (SG 3.3).  Selected grains were mounted and polished in 25 mm cylindrical epoxy mounts.

Semi-quantitative electron microprobe analysis of the grains was carried out at CANMET labs in Ottawa.

55 kimberlite indicator minerals were identified out of 1195 grains probed.
