Diamond Prospecting and Mining
The kimberlite is extracted in enormous quantities using huge trucks and giant steam shovels; the pipe is mined from the surface as an open pit. When it gets too deep, underground mining may begin. Because of the huge quantities of rock involved, the mining is highly mechanized.

Kimberlite Deposits and Geology Formation of Diamonds
Oct 16, 2015 Kimberlite is an ultramafic rock derived from the mantle. Diamonds crystallize in the mantle well below the crust but they are carried up into the crust by the rising kimberlitic magma. Only 1% of kimberlite is economic and these are almost always found in or above Archean cratons. Sub-Sahara in Africa and Russia together produce 80% of the ...
HANDBOOK ON KIMBERLITE EXPLORATION AND MINING
Kimberlite often contains fragments of upper-mantle derived ultramafic rocks, including xenocrysts such as pyrope garnet, picro-ilmenite, chromian spinel and chrome-diopside. Kimberlite may contain diamond, but as a very rare constituent. Two distinct types of kimberlite are recognised: Group I, …
