Location: Room 111, Red Deer Provincial Bldg., 4920 - 51 Street, Red Deer
Central Alberta Branch's series of "Lunchtime Forum" events, held every first Tuesday of the month -

Kimberlitic pipes (where diamonds are generally found) were first discovered in Alberta in 1989. To September, 2003, a total of 48 pipes have been discovered in three separate areas in the "northern Alberta kimberlite province", by six different companies or joint ventures. The Buffalo Head Hills area has the highest diamond content results so far, with three of the pipes containing estimated diamond grades of more than 11 carats per hundred tones. It is very likely that, with continued exploration, Alberta will have an important economic deposit in its future.

Roy Eccles, P.Geol., of Alberta Geological Survey, Alberta Energy and Utilities Board, will present details of the history of the search for diamonds in Alberta, what information has been accumulated so far, and what the future of Alberta may be with further discoveries.
