In this regard, the widespread presence of kimberlite indicator minerals is to be expected given the presence of ten drill confirmed kimberlite pipes and does not necessarily validate a geophysical target as being kimberlite.
Preliminary indications are that there is an increasing correlation between kimberlite indicator minerals collected from the till samples and magnetic geophysical anomalies interpretated from the very extensive airborne geophysical program conducted in 2005.
Ground geophysical surveys, both magnetic and gravity, were completed over seven airborne magnetic anomalies.
