ODM MMSIM and PCIM grain counts



Overburden Drilling Management: metamorphosed or magmatic massive sulphide indicator mineral (MMSIM) grain counts and porphyry copper indicator mineral (PCIM) grain counts.

General Methodology:

Overburden Drilling Management indicator mineral counts. Minerals are preconcentrated from bulk samples with respect to density and magnetism, then picked for grains indicating various sources, including:

  • KIM:  kimberlite indicator minerals
  • MMSIM:  metamorphosed or magmatic massive sulphide indicator minerals
  • PCIM:  porphyry copper indicator minerals
