Dimondiferous kimberlite, a rock type associated with diamonds, is found in Africa and now Antarctica. Both continents share a similar tectonic setting known as continental rifting, which may aid in kimberlite-style volcanism. Mining in Antarctica is currently not possible for the countries that signed the Antarctic Treaty (the continent is kept preserved for scientific research).
