4.12 19Kimberlite breccia with
5.23 2780% mafic Schist, 20% pfg.
6.27 281% aphinitic, textureless kimberlite, some phlogopites.
7.28 2970% dark green, aphanitic kimberlite, clay balls? of kimberlite
8.29 3120% pfg + Quartzite.
9.31 39Kimberlite presence is often only as clay coatings to chips, presence of quartz - chlorite Schist gives logging problem espcially with estimating % inclusions section in rich basement inclusions.
