Field Trips – UNDER REVISION FOR 2024

The 12th International Kimberlite Conference (12 IKC) will celebrate ‘30 Years of Diamonds in Canada’, during which hundreds of kimberlites were discovered across Canada, leading to the opening of seven mines and Canada becoming one of the top three diamond producers in the world (by value).
