Redox preconditioning deep cratonic lithosphere for kimberlite genesis - evidence from the central Slave Craton

Yaxley, Gregory; Berry, Andrew; Rosenthal, Anja; Woodland, Alan; Paterson, David

Description

We present the first oxygen fugacity (fO2) profile through the cratonic lithospheric mantle under the Panda kimberlite (Ekati Diamond Mine) in the Lac de Gras kimberlite field, central Slave Craton, northern Canada. Combining this data with new and existing data from garnet peridotite xenoliths from an almost coeval kimberlite (A154-N) at the nearby Diavik Diamond Mine demonstrates that the oxygen fugacity of the Slave cratonic mantle varies by several orders of magnitude as a function of depth...[Show more]
