Diamond Exploration - Webb Diamond Project, Australia
Coffee with Samso Episode 30 with Thomas Reddicliffe, GeoCrystal Limited
In this episode I talk to diamond industry veteran Thomas Reddicliffe of GeoCrystal
Limited, who currently works on the Webb Diamond Project.
I was keen to interview Thomas because diamonds and diamond exploration have
been missing from geological conversations for many years, although in that time
there have been many good diamond discoveries.
In fact, I have to go back as far as the mid-1990s to recall when diamond exploration
was openly discussed.
The current investment environment seems to be good for diamonds and Thomas
was the ideal industry insider to ask about this.
Webb Diamond Project is one of the most exciting diamond explorations of recent
times, giving enough vectors to a potential source of diamond-bearing Kimberlites.
However, although drilling has confirmed the presence of Kimberlites, the prize of
these diamond-bearing Kimberlites is still elusive.
Thomas didn’t disappoint in his information-filled conversation, with great insights
into the ins and outs of diamond exploration.
Key points of his interview include:
A northern section of the Webb field contains “a tantalising spread” of microdiamonds, the best indicator of diamonds
GeoCrystal has invested more than AUS$4 million so far in the project and would benefit from additional investment
Many targets remain to be tested in the Webb field, which has ideal geology and mineral chemistry for diamonds, and optimism is high for discovery
In fact, Thomas gave me so much information it was difficult to edit it all – so this is a
I hope you find it an interesting object lesson in diamond exploration and its
