    THE recent discovery that CO2 at upper mantle pressures has a dramatic effect on the melting temperature of peridotite (because the silicate assemblage . Recently published experimental data suggest that the Earth’s mantle below ∼ km is saturated in metallic Fe, reaching a concentration of ∼1 wt.% Fe 0 throughout the lower mantle and buffering oxygen fugacity by Fe 0 ↔Fe 2+ reactions. Metallic Fe in the mantle bears important implications for N, which behaves as a moderately siderophile element.

    In the early s, Boyd began a fruitful collaboration with Peter Nixon, who was then collecting and studying the kimberlites of Lesotho, Africa. Based on Boyd’s P-T phase-equilibrium studies on the diopside–enstatite miscibility gap, coupled with analytical data on Al 2. This is a book about the people, not the bus. Those who (rightfully) turn on to the genesis and mineralogic complexities of kimberlites, the mechanisms of diatreme for- mation, and the parageneses of diamond will find much to excite them in Volume I of these Proceedings--Kimberlites.

Occasional reports of large diamond finds began to circulate nonetheless. Lesotho Kimberlites (), a book Nixon later compiled and edited as chief geologist in the country’s Department of Mines and Geology, noted that some 1, diggers were working the area bya number that quickly swelled to some 6, within two years.

Grade-tonnage and other quantitative models help give reasonable answers to questions about diamond kimberlite pipes. Diamond kimberlite pipes are those diamondiferous kimberlite pipes that either have been worked or are expected to be worked for diamonds.

These models are not applicable to kimberlite dikes and sills or to lamproite pipes. Diamond kimberlite pipes contain a median 26 million. B) Plan view of the Letseng, Lesotho kimberlite (after Bloomer and Nixon, ).
