Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: No laboratory was required

The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) maintains the Kimberlite Indicator and Diamond Database (KIDD).  The KIDD database lists counts for ten quantities:

  • Diamond
  • Pyrope_P
  • Pyrope_E
  • Total_Garnet
  • ChrmDiop
  • Chrom/spin
  • Ilmn_Picro
  • OPX
  • Olivine
  • Total_Grains

This package permits a re-mapping from KIM counts in original reports to KIM counts that are compatible with KIDD.  The grain counts are for the 0.25 – 0.50 mm size fraction.  The weight of the sample that was processed is reported (typically about 10 kg).  The weight of the heavy mineral concentrate that was recovered from the 0.25 – 0.50 mm size fraction is also reported (typically a few tens of grams).
