TORONTO -- A group of Canadian researchers, who discovered diamonds in a small rock sample found in an unrealized gold deposit in Nunavut, say their findings hint at the possibility of new deposits in the area that are similar to the world's richest gold mine.

According to a press release issued in October, the new research "fills in blanks" about the thermal conditions of Earth's crust three billion years ago.

The findings are set to be released in two studies at the virtual fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union between Dec. 1-17.

Damn.  Why do we have to find such valuable resources in such ecologically fragile areas?  Damn.
