Pangolin finds two more diamonds, 210 kimberlite indicators at Malatswae

12 may 2016
Pangolin Diamonds said it recovered two additional diamonds and 210 kimberlite indicators within the MTS grid at Malatswae diamond project, in Botswana.
13 diamonds had been reported from the Malatswae diamond project to date.
The diamond exploration company said the latest diamonds recovered were from samples collected less than 110 metres apart.
One of the diamonds was colorless clear broken macle of approximate dimensions of 1mm x 1mm x 0.5mm, while the other stone contained an off-white broken diamond aggregate with approximate dimensions of 1mm x 0.8mm x 0.5mm.
“Both diamonds have orange to brown secondary iron oxides filling cracks and crevices,” it said.
Meanwhile, Pangolin Diamonds said in addition to the 177 kimberlite indicators previously reported, 210 indicators were recovered bringing the number to a total of 390 kimberlite indicators (including the three diamonds) from the MTS Grid.
“Morphology and surface texture analysis of the garnets previously reported that the majority have surface textures consistent with a proximal source,” it said.
“The distribution of the diamonds and the garnets suggest at least three different sources within the MTS Grid.”
The company said drilling for kimberlite within the MTS Grid would take place in second half of the year.
