Rocks and Ores -Non-Metallic Ores, Various localities

Commercially, non-metallic ores and rocks can be just as important or even more important than metallic ores!!

I have included a selection of diamond drill core samples in this section. The cores are from a diamond prospect in Northwestern Quebec, right on the border with Ontario, at the top of Lake Temiskaming. The core samples all show eclogitic pyropes and other indicator minerals plus the breccia fragment textures often seen in this unique rock type.

All prices in Canadian dollars. For payment in US$, deduct 21% or multiply by 0.79.
