The Kennady North Project kimberlites (Northwest Territories of Canada) comprises multiple shallow dipping dykes and several volcaniclastic bodies that have an unusual shallow plunging geometry and complex "pipe" shapes that are termed chonoliths. The detailed Read more... about Kelvin and Faraday kimberlite emplacement geometries and implications for subterranean magmatic processes

Field relations, petrography and bulk rock geochemistry constrain the emplacement mechanisms and petrogenesis of a kimberlite sill complex exposed in water tunnels at Wesselton Mine, Kimberley. The sill complex, together with associated dykes, is precursor to the main Wesselton pipe and contains Read more... about Kimberlite Sills and Dykes Associated with the Wesselton Kimberlite Pipe, Kimberly, South Africa
