which is sad because kimberlite pipes are so interesting! How can a volcanic pipe from a massive explsoion that occurs only on cratons where the crust is thick enough that the temperature gradient isn't too high, so that the minerals in the pipe can allow you to study the actual makeup of the upper mantle and... not to mention being filled with olivine, garnets, and other awesome rocks... kimberlites are so pretty...

At least it's possible to go up North and work for Shear minerals... who only own the one property up there...is it Ekati? I think so...

Gaah... I am such a geo-geek
