Tectonic Prerequisites of Kimberlite Magmatism in the South of the Yakut Diamondiferous Province

Protsenko E.V., Gorev N. I., Grakhanov O. S.

The data of oil prospecting drilling allowed to carry out the study of tectonics of the southern part of the Yakut diamondiferous province. The investigated  territory belongs to the central part of the regional Viluysk-Markhinskaya zone of breaks having more complex structure of the sedimentary cover. The analysis of tectonic schemes allowed to prove the prospects of this territory and to allocate the most optimum site for search of a kimberlite field.

Key words: tectonics, faults, kimberlite field, diamonds.
