CH15 Kimberlite

CH-15 Kimberlite

This kimberlite was found via core diamond drilling during the 2009 exploration season.
2 Core drills for a total of 222 m were completed.

The discovery was mentioned in this press release -- Sept 14, 2009

Excerpt:

"The CH-14 and CH-15 kimberlites are represented by magnetic high anomalies measuring approximately 150 metres by 100 metres and 100 metres by 40 metres respectively. The CH-13 and CH-16 kimberlites are represented by magnetic low anomalies measuring 150 metres by 50 metres and 200 metres by 150 metres respectively. Prior to drilling, kimberlite float was discovered at surface by prospecting at all of these sites except CH-10. A kimberlite outcrop measuring approximately 70 metres by 50 metres was discovered at CH-14. The CH-10, CH14 and CH-15 kimberlites are described as being dominantly magmatic. The CH-13 and CH-16 kimberlites are described as being dominated by pyroclastic material."

Size =  0.4 hectares

From the microdiamond results press release -- Dec 3, 2009

"A 170.5 kilogram sample of drill core from CH-15 returned four diamonds, the largest sitting on the +0.300 mm sieve."

This will be put on the backburner for now.
