removal of the barren (kimberlite)

Faz sentido... Espero que ajude.

Kimberlite: A rare type of peridotite that sometimes contains diamonds; found in South Africa and Siberia. Wordweb Dictionary

Referring to the application of the invention in the detection of diamonds in host bodies of kimberlite it is recognised that it would be highly desirable in diamond recovery operations to have the facility to detect, at an early stage, kimberlite particles which are host to diamond inclusions. It would then be possible to reject the barren kimberlite particles and continue with processing of only those particles which are indicated as containing diamond inclusions. With barren particles rejected at an early stage, the downstream processing equipment could have a reduced capacity requirement.
