 Diatech are specialists in the visual identification of kimberlite indicator minerals (KIMS, or 'Diamond Indicator Minerals', 'DIMS') from heavy mineral concentrates. Once a sample has been observed or 'picked', we are able to provide SEM verification of the grain or grains, assessment based on grain morphology and surface texture analysis, and quality electron microprobe analysis. Everyday we routinely perform an efficient and highly accurate kimberlite indicator mineral selection service.

Kimberlite indicator minerals, used as pathfinders for diamond, include pyrope garnet, Cr-spinel (commonly reffered to as 'chromite'), Mg-ilmenite ('picroilmenite'), Cr-diopside, olivine, and enstatite.

After more than 20 years, the service continues to withstand vigorous quality control testing by our most fastidious clients
