AbstractThe discovery of diamond-bearing kimberlite within the Chidliak kimberlite province on Hall Peninsula, southern Baffin Island, Nunavut, is a classic example of the application of traditional diamond-exploration techniques in a glaciated terrain. To date, 64 kimberlite pipes have been discovered: 61 on the Chidliak project and three on the adjacent Qilaq project. The first discovery was made in 2008, making Chidliak the most recent kimberlite province discovered in Canada. Comprehensive kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) classification and interpretation techniques, including abrasion and geochemical analyses have played a significant role in these discoveries and have evolved over the course of the project.
