Three specimens have been studied of the rare kyanite eclogite nodules in kimberlite from the Roberts Victor mine, South Africa. All are essentially the same with the primary assemblage: kyanite, omphacite, garnet, diamond (in one sample), chrome diopside, and rutile.

Rovic Mine South Africa book Victor Mine), Boshof, Lejweleputswa District, Free State, South Africa: A diamond mine in a kimberlite deposit consisting of two dykes, one of which is associated with two pipes.

The diamond grades and qualities of the different kimberlite bodies varied considerably. Classification of Roberts Victor garnet xenocrysts. To assist in understanding the constitution of the mantle sampled by the Roberts Victor kimberlite, and to help constrain the proportion of group I to group II eclogites in the upper mantle in this region of southern Africa, we have analysed a suite of garnet xenocrysts (n=) selected at random from 1–2 mm fraction of run-of-mine heavy Cited by: A grospydite from Roberts Victor contains the most Ca-rich garnets yet found in South African kimberlite xenoliths and also sub-micron sized sodic nepheline in melted and quenched clinopyroxene.

Three stages can be recognised in the textural evolution of the by: The samples used in this study are eclogite xenoliths from the Roberts Victor Kimberlite mine in South Africa (Group II kimberlite, Ma emplacement age; Smith et al., ), part of a.

The kimberlite pipe at Rietfontein has been found to contain a suite of ultrabasic xenoliths, amongst which are kyanite eclogites of unusual freshness. The kyanite crystals are of varying shades of blue. Physical properties of some of the primary minerals together with the chemical composition of four kyanite eclogites and of a light and a dark blue kyanite crystal are by: 5.

Abstract The eclogite xenoliths from the Roberts Victor pipe may be divided into two groups. The first group consists of coarse grained, subhedral to rounded garnets in a matrix of anhedral to interstitial clinopyroxene, and they may be subdivided on the basis of their.

The answer has important implications for the definition of major Earth extensive eclogite suite from the Roberts Victor kimberlite (South Africa) has previously been divided into. Abstract The Roberts Victor kimberlite pipe-dike system is well known as type locality for intensively studied eclogitic xenoliths.

Since more than 95% of the Roberts Victor xenoliths are rather of eclogitic than of peridotitic type, mineralogical data of lherzolitic peridotites from the mine is extremely rare.

The studied eclogite xenolith, 09RV09 (total mass ∼ g), is from the Roberts Victor mine, South Africa. The sample was selected on the basis of; (1) its relatively fresh appearance; (2) the presence of diamonds, and; (3) heterogeneously distributed zones with varying modal proportions of Cited by: The presented experiment with seismic warning concept was a success because it was an internal mine project.

Further, the Vaal Reefs management adopted the philosophy that the success rate should be measured in the preventive actions taken, not in the success of the prediction : Hardcover.
