Pangolin Recovers Pyrope Garnets with Near-Source Features Over a Geophysical Anomaly at Malatswae Diamond Project, Botswana

  • Four soil samples produced 14 pyrope garnets with near-source surface features
  • The features include trichitic etch pits and channels that result from chemical weathering of pyrope garnet
