Lakefield Research/Overburden Drilling Management Indicator Mineral Picking



Lakefield Research/Overburden Drilling Management indicator mineral counts. Samples are picked for 4 major indicator minerals including Cr-diopside, Cr-pyrope, Mg-ilmenite and chromite. The 0.25-0.5 mm, 0.5-1 mm and 1-2 mm fractions are picked for indicator minerals.

General Methodology:

Lakefield Research/Overburden Drilling Management indicator mineral picking and grain mounting. Till/glaciofluvial and kimberlite samples are examined for indicator minerals under binocular microscopes. The 0.25-0.5 mm, 0.5-1.0 mm and 1-2 mm fractions are picked for pyrope, chrome diopside, ilmenite and chromite. The indicator mineral picking results for these two laboratories were combined in Table 3 of Open File 3719 and Table 2 of Open File 3769.
