COPETON DIAMOND PROJECT- MOUNT ROSS/DAVIS BLOCK/MALACCA/COLLAS HILL-RESOURCE
via, Copeton, NSW 2360 Has Copeton Diamond Project- Mount Ross/Davis Block/Malacca/Collas Hill-Resource currently at Construction stage. At Collas Hill, 3 km south of Mount Ross, a pit has been opened up on the north side, beneath the portal of an old diamond and tin mine, to sample previously unsuspected horizons. Heavy mineral sampling has yielded small orange garnets, and abundant black tourmaline, both historically associated with diamond. Once the deepening of the exploratory shaft occurs, samples for the base of the sediments will be processed through the plant to determine whether there are diamonds present. The shaft will then be deepened beyond the granite bedrock depth of 50 metres, and a tunnel 30 metres long within the granite basement. From this, several vetical rises will be put in to test the sediments for diamond content. Click for more details...
