There is strong diamond potential at the Providence Greenstone Belt project in addition to past gold and base metal discoveries.
The land tenure is a combination of claims and mineral leases that were originally acquired in 2001 and 2002 and have recently been added to. The northern portion of the staked greenstone belt and surrounding geology, the Zip Project, has received the bulk of the historical diamond exploration by GGL as a result of early sampling success.
Successive exploration campaigns have returned heavy mineral samples with kimberlitic indicator mineral counts in excess of 100 grains per sample. Microprobe results demonstrate diamond inclusion chemistry in garnets.
Airborne geophysical surveys have identified high priority magnetic and conductive kimberlitic targets up-ice and proximal to high count heavy mineral samples.
Abundance of indicator minerals along with low abrasion surface features suggest proximity to source - Kelyphitic coating (yellow stars shown in figure below)
