Survey Description


In 1993, eight kimberlite boulders were collected from the Misema River and Munro eskers in the Kirkland Lake kimberlite field.  Two additional boulders were collected from this area in 1999.

In 1997, eight kimberlite boulders were collected from the Sharp Lake esker (in an active gravel pit) in the Lake Timiskaming kimberlite field, northeastern Ontario.

Six kimberlite boulders and 20 sand samples were collected from the Sharp Lake and Lac Baby eskers in the Lake Timiskaming kimberlite field of northwestern Quebec in 2001 and 2002.

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 4361 and 5050.
