The discovery of detrital diamond crystals during small-scale, gold-pitting operations by local Uighur people in the Hotien district of the Xinjiang Autonomous Region in western China, has stimulated the Chinese Authorities' interest and led to funding of a prospecting feasibility project by scientists from the China University of Geosciences, Beijing.
