Diamond and Metallic-Mineral Potential of the Peerless Lake Map Area, North-Central Alberta

A regional geochemical sampling program for diamond and metallic-mineral potential was completed during the summer of 1998 in the Peerless Lake map area, north-central Alberta. The area encompasses the 1997 discovery of diamondiferous kimberlites ... Show Abstract

Remnants of (Possibly Diamondiferous) Ultramafic Igneous Rocks in Bedrock of the Kakwa/Wapiti area, West Central Alberta

Bedrock sampling at 23 sites, heavy mineral separation and microprobing confirmed that indicator minerals of ultramafic igneous rocks are present in Cretaceous bedrock of the Wapiti area (NTS 83L). Para-magnetic heavy minerals (>3.3 SG) from ... Show Abstract

A Study of Peridotitic Garnet Xenocryst Compositions from Selected Ultramafic Bodies in the Northern Alberta Kimberlite Province: Implications for Mantle Stratigraphy and Garnet Classification

Electron microprobe (EMPA) major-element analyses of peridotitic garnet xenocrysts from the northern Alberta kimberlite province typically have well-defined lherzolitic paragenesis with geochemical affinities that are uncharacteristic of garnet in ... Show Abstract

Geochemical Orientation Surveys (Fiscal Year 2000-2001) for Kimberlites in Northern Alberta

Geochemical Orientation Surveys (Fiscal Year 2000-2001) for Kimberlites in Northern Alberta In northern Alberta, indicator mineral analysis may not be effective for detecting kimberlites because kimberlites are decoupled from streams draining ... Show Abstract

Petrographic Characteristics of Selected Kimberlitic Rocks in Northern 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 ... Show Abstract
