Northern Alberta Kimberlite Province: The First 20 Years

Abstract: This report summarizes the diamond potential of Alberta by integrating documentation of the first 20 years (1990-2010) of kimberlite and related rock discovery and examination in northern Alberta. The report comprehensively summarizes the events that led to the discovery of kimberlitic rocks in Alberta, the geological setting in which they were discovered, geochronology, physical and chemical volcanological characteristics, rock classification, emplacement setting and diamond content. The information in this report will help explorers evaluate present and future diamondiferous kimberlite discoveries in northern Alberta and the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.
