Dios explores for high potential intrusives associated with deep structures. Glacial sediment sampling defines indicator mineral dispersal trains for diamond indicator minerals for kimberlites. Dios discovered gold dispersal trains leading up-ice to date to outcropping gold-bearing granites near major structures.
Carbonatites intrusives and kimberlites are deep-rooted intrusives, alkaline magmatism facies, often associated with rift zones. Kimberlites (diamond potential) rise up as volcanoes coming from the earth’s mantle, some 400 kilometers at depth, whereas carbonatites come up from some 100 kilometers deep, bringing up to the surface commodities such as niobium, tantalum and rare earths.
