GSC-NC-2002-Triple B and Seed Kimberlite Ontario; Kimberlite samples: ODM HMC separation and sorting

Type: lab data

Bundle Description

3 kimberlite samples collected in 2001 from the Triple B and Seed Kimberlite area were sent to Overburden Drilling Management, Ottawa, Ontario; processed for heavy mineral concentrates (HMC) and sorted. The < 1 mm sieved fraction was separated using the table shaker and methylene iodide (S.G.3.2); the 1-2 mm fraction is separated only using methylene iodide (S.G. 3.2). Kimberlites were crushed before processing and the sieved and the < 0.180 mm fraction was removed.  No gold grains were counted.

Grain separation data and indicator mineral are published in GSC Open File 4492.

Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Overburden Drilling Management, Ottawa, Ontario (ODM)

Name: ODM Heavy Mineral Separation and VG counts (kimberlite boulders #4) (more)

Overburden Drilling Management grain separation and heavy mineral concentrates. The grain separation procedure corresponds to the standard ODM flow chart. Kimberlite samples are crushed and soaked prior to sieving and sorting. The < 0.180 mm fraction is sieved from the bulk and discarded. No gold grains are counted.
