If the micro diamond recovery results for the Sample Snow-47 Lower Intercept are normalized to a 100 kg sample size, then the Snow-47 Lower Intercept would have a diamond count
of 160 per 100 kg.
The diamond results from this particular outcrop area are similar to the range of the diamond count
values of samples LAL 221 to LAL 230.
Results from the larger 2004 sample returned an overall higher diamond count
per kilogram, a coarser size distribution and larger diamonds than results from the 2002 sample.
Previous work on the property by State organizations has resulted in the recovery of large numbers of diamond indicator minerals in association with a series of exploration drilling results revealing an exceptionally high diamond count
, including one hole with 452 diamonds from 118 kgs of material.
We'll know whether it shows an interesting diamond count
or significant diamond count
Additionally, the diamond count
and valuations may make it attractive for a smaller scale surface operation, providing the ore could be trucked to a processing plant.
The SeitaperA[currency] diamond count
is high and compares well with many recent
Given the small sample size, both the diamond count
and the quality of diamonds recovered are significant.
In response to the recently released high diamond counts
from the Char and Qavvik kimberlites, Diamonds North plans to collect larger bulk samples, approximately 6 to 10 tonnes, from each of these kimberlites.
As with all of the other kimberlites discovered within the Tremblay corridor to date, initial diamond counts
from these two occurrences are highly encouraging.
Detailed sieve data is reported below and represents the total diamond counts
from each kimberlite, adding recent results to previously reported tallies.
Encouraging macro and micro diamond counts
indicate that LI-201 kimberlite has tapped the diamond stability field.
