Topic: Mountain River Beryl-Investigation of the Mountain River beryl (emerald variety) occurrence, Mackenzie Mountains, NT
Several discoveries of emerald and green beryl in the Yukon and Northwest Territories have prompted interest in the Western Cordillera as a new source of gem-quality beryl. The Mountain River beryl (MRB) showing in the Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, was discovered in 2007 during a regional mapping program by the NWT Geoscience Office. The showing occurs on a steep slope 160 km south-west of Norman Wells, NT, hosted within thinly bedded to thickly layered pyritic sandstone with minor dolostone units of the Neoproterozoic Twitya Formation. The beryl is found within quartz-carbonate-albite veins with minor disseminated pyrite and trace chalcopyrite, and occurs as non-gem quality milky to mint green hexagonal crystals 1 to 10 mm in diameter and up to 4 cm in length.
