Pangolin recovers 177 kimberlite indicators at Botswana project

01 april 2016
Pangolin Diamonds said 177 kimberlite indicators were recovered from 99 soil samples collected within the MTS grid following an integrated study of mineral chemistry and surface textures of kimberlite indicators.
The MTS grid was a defined 1.5 km² area in the northern part of Malatswae diamond project in Botswana.
The majority of the indicators had surface textures suggesting a proximal source, it said.
“Based on these results, three focus areas are defined by anomalous concentrations of kimberlitic indicators with surface textures indicative of a proximal source,” said Pangolin.
It said a detailed magnetic survey was being conducted over the entire grid, while an infill gravity survey would be conducted at the completion of the sampling and groundmagnetic programmes to increase the gravity survey data.
“A synthesis of all the soil sample results, surface texture analyses and geophysical data will be integrated towards selecting future drill targets at the MTS Grid,” said Pangolin.
“Drilling will take place in 2016.”
Pangolin had previously reported a diamond from a sample near the northern edge of the MTS Grid, confirming it as the third and newest diamond-bearing target area in the Malatswae project sample.
