2019-3-13  Kimberlite-country rock contact delineation at Finsch Diamond Mine The Finsch kimberlite consists of eight main kimberlite facies, denoted F1 to F8 (Figure 2). The F5/F6 and F3 facies constitute the precursor bodies on the outer perimeter of the main pipe. These precursor bodies are mainly coherent kimberlite types.

Letšeng Diamond Mine, Kimberlite, Lesotho, Gem

The Letšeng Diamond Mine is the lowest grade primary diamond deposit being mined globally and contains some of the world’s largest and highest value diamonds. Due to the very low grade of the various kimberlite types being mined, resource development is challenging. Traditional evaluation methods are often not feasible.

Kimberlite emplacement models — The implications for ...

2008-6-20  In the case of mine design for primary diamond deposits, the valid emplacement model is perhaps the most important aspect of kimberlite geology. The level of understanding of various kimberlite emplacement processes has a direct relationship with the degree of uncertainty (and associated risk) of the economic outcome of a project or a mine.

Role of geology in diamond project development -

2004-9-1  Selecting the mining method starts relatively early in the project development process, as the scramble for input data begins. Often, at the end of the exploration drilling program, very little is known about the country rock or kimberlite body contact zones, even though most of the drillholes were collared or terminated outside the pipe.

Diamond Mining Methods Diamond Museum Cape Town

In underground mining, miners tunnel through Earth’s crust to the kimberlite pipe. Tunnels are constructed in two levels, one above the other with funnels built to connect the two. Mining begins on the top level by blasting ore, which falls through the funnels and collects on the second tunnel.

Diamond Mining Methods Block Cave and Bench

Underground mining consists of a large vertical shaft running next to a kimberlite pipe to be used for access to many horizontal tunnels leading into the kimberlite. Diamond-bearing rock is blasted loose at the tunnel faces, hauled to the surface, and processed. Most of the mines vary in types of production.
