Petrographic Characteristics of Selected Kimberlitic Rocks in Northern Alberta

Abstract: This report investigates the petrogenesis of kimberlite in Alberta. Five kimberlite pipes in the northern Alberta kimberlite province were selected for detailed petrography: K4 and K6 from the Buffalo Head Hills and Legend, Phoenix and Kendu from the Birch Mountains. The main objective is to complement and expand upon the whole-rock geochemistry with optical mineralogical observations of selected pipes. A petrographic-geochemical comparison shows identification of the primary mineral assemblage, together with whole-rock geochemical interpretation, that uses both major and trace elements. This provides a complementary tool to classify Alberta kimberlitic rocks.
