CH11 Kimberlite (barren)

Chidliak CH-11 Kimberlite

Original discovery announced September 14, 2009 - Original announcement.

PGD has been declaring anything barren as a test that comes back with no stones on the 0.106mm sieve. This pipe has a test that contained only a  single stone on the 0.075mm sieve and is therefore considered barren under this definition.

"The CH-11 and CH-12 kimberlites were discovered at surface while prospecting geophysical anomalies."

"The CH-11 and CH-12 kimberlites are each represented by magnetic high anomalies measuring approximately 100 metres by 50 metres. At CH-11, kimberlite occurs as outcrop and subcrop over an area measuring approximately 10 metres by 50 metres. "

Size represents approximately 0.5 hectares in size.

Occurs as an outcrop and subcrop over an area measuring approximately 10 metres by 50 metres associated with a magnetic anomaly with an associated topographic expression.

Caustic results:

A 210 kg sample was processed and came back with 1 stone on the smallest seive (0.075 mm).

They can qualify this as being diamond-bearing...however, it is unlikely that any further work will be done on ch-11 in the short to medium term.  Further work may be done in the far distant history to see if there is any multi-phase sections within the kimberlite itself.
