A recent article by Ehud Laniado, titled Technology in the Diamond Industry: Exploration, delves into the ways in which technology impacts the diamond industry, particularly when it comes to mine exploration. The most challenging stage in the diamond industry, Laniado explains, is mine exploration. The industry has used magnetic surveying for decades – utilizing the high density, high magnetic susceptibility, and high electrical conductivity in the rocks surrounding kimberlites to pinpoint the distinct electro-magnetic signature of kimberlites. However, this technique not only yields a lot of false-positives, but often fails to “spot a diamond deposit that had a slower journey to the surface”. What might change all this, Laniado explains, is high-frequency seismic reflection technology and ground penetrating radar.
