Geophysical Survey Methods in Diamond Exploration

Geophysical methods are particularly useful in diamond exploration. They tend to work well because kimberlite pipes, the diamond hosting rock, generally have properties that are different from the surrounding rock. In addition, the data provide most of the guidance on where to position drillholes
