ODM KIM count



Kimberlite indicator mineral grain counts.  The grains identified are peridotitic garnet (GP), eclogitic garnet (GO), chrome diopside (DC), Mg-ilmenite (IM), chromite (CR) and forsteritic olivine (FO).

General Methodology:

Overburden Drilling Management kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) counts.  Minerals are preconcentrated from bulk samples with respect to density and magnetism, then picked for grains indicating kimberlites.
