ST. PETERSBURG, July 8. /TASS/. Geologists initiate prospecting of diamond deposits in Murmansk Region using maps prepared according to findings of comprehensive studies, the Russian geological holding Rosgeo said on Friday.
"Rosgeo starts the summer field work season to prospect for primary diamond fields within Pulongskaya Area in Murmansk Region. Interpretation of data acquired during field geological and geophysical work in March - April of this year made possible to evaluate prospects of local magnetic anomalies in respect of kimberlite bodies identification," press service of Rosgeo’s Northwest geological performance unit said.
