Diamonds North Begins Processing Beluga-3 Bulk Sample To Test For Larger Diamonds
| ||VANCOUVER, November 18th, 2010 - Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: DDN) announces the commencement of the processing of the 25 tonne bulk sample from the Beluga-3 kimberlite collected in 2010, located on the Company's 100% owned Amaruk property in Nunavut.|
The sample, with a total lab weight of 24,613 kilograms is at the Saskatchewan Research Council Laboratory. A diamond concentrate will be produced using a 1 tonne per hour Bateman Dense Media Separation plant with a 0.5mm screen size cut-off. The sample is being separated into five batches for quality assurance and comparison of diamond content. Results will be reported upon receipt and final review and are anticipated mid to late December.
A mini-bulk sample of the Beluga-3 kimberlite completed in 2009 demonstrated larger diamond potential, giving the Company confidence to proceed with this larger bulk sample (see News Release NR09-17, December 1st, 2009). Based on rough reconstructive analysis provided by Saskatchewan Research Council Laboratory, the Company estimates the largest diamond fragment recovered in 2009 to have been a diamond weighing from 0.2 to 0.25 carats (see News Release NR10-05, April 16th, 2010).
The Beluga-3 bulk sample was drilled using a low cost, light weight bulk sampling drill that utilizes flood reverse circulation without percussion to reduce and/or eliminate significant diamond breakage.
A total of 25 kimberlites have been discovered on the Amaruk property and 90% of the kimberlites processed for diamonds are proven to be diamondiferous. Hundreds of untested anomalies and numerous kimberlite indicator mineral trains remain unresolved, offering high potential for additional kimberlite discoveries on the property. Diamonds North also tested a time domain electromagnetic airborne system on the property this season and will continue refining kimberlite targeting methods.
Bruce Kienlen (P.Geol) and Graham Gill (P. Geo) are Diamonds North's qualified persons, as defined by National Instrument 43-101, for reviewing this project. They are responsible for the design and conduct of exploration programs and the verification and quality assurance of analytical results.
