Diamonds in Antartica

Researchers have found three samples of the rare rock kimberlite around Mount Meredith in East Antarctica. Oh, that doesn’t sound very exciting? Well did you know that kimberlite often contains diamonds?

"It would be very surprising if there weren’t diamonds in these kimberlites," said Greg Yaxley of the Australian National University in Canberra, who led the research. But Yaxley said that if the diamonds are in fact there, they will likely stay there: "I don’t think it’s terribly practical that anyone could actually explore successfully and, personally, I hope that mining does not take place."
