Survey Description


In 1998, a total of 154 till samples and 8 heavy mineral pan concentrates were collected on the Coronation Diamond property located approximately 500 km northeast of Yellowknife.  During the summer of 1999, SouthernEra personnel conducted a property visit and ground checked five targets and collected seven samples.

The exploration program consisted of collecting samples along nine fences perpendicular to ice flow direction. The till samples were sent for processing at Monopros Grande Prairie facility. These samples were then sent to DeBeer’s Laboratory in South Africa for microprobe work. The heavy mineral pan concentrates were sent to the Saskatchewan Research Council for diamond indicator processing and picking. These samples were then sent to the University of Saskatchewan for microprobe work.

The data can be found in Nunavut Assessment Report 084302.
