Other information:

Ni (INAA), Ti (INAA) and B (ICP-MS) data are for HMC analyses only. LOI (GRAV) data are for sediment samples only.

Additional mineralogical data from heavy mineral concentrates are included in this report. Kimberlite indicator minerals were picked and identified from each of three size fractions (0.25-0.5 mm, 0.5 mm-1.0 mm, 1.0-2.0 mm). The 0.25-0.5 mm fraction (minus KIMs) was further characterized by a 100 mineral grain count.
