The microdiamond data from this years' drilling clearly demonstrates that not only is the grade of this newly-defined extension of the CH-6 kimberlite very similar to that which we have previously defined, but also that we can expect the same macro diamond size distribution, which has important implications for future diamond valuations .

Five of the planned six large-diameter core holes were completed and approximately 33 tonnes of kimberlite was recovered, which the project operator, De Beers Canada, considers sufficient to complete the planned objective of the diamond size distribution modeling for the 5034 North Lobe diamonds.
It added : "Such an increase in run-of-mine (ROM) grade, partially offset by a finer diamond size population, is expected to yield a 7 - 10 per cent increase in revenue per tonne".
