Arctic Star Announces Diamond Count of 758 Stones from Drilling at Timantti Diamond Project, Finland

10 july 2018
Arctic Star Exploration Corp has announced the second set of results from drilling operations at the White Wolf kimberlite at its 100% owned Timantti Diamond Project near Kuusamo, Finland. The processing of 262.33kg showed the grade of 758 stones. 
Buddy Doyle, VP of Exploration stated, “We are very encouraged by the diamond results from White Wolf kimberlite, we await the diamond results from Black Wolf, and Grey Wolf, expected prior to the end of this month. With all the results in hand we can plan the next stage for these kimberlites. However, our focus will be more on finding more, we expect we are in a larger kimberlite field based on diamond indicators in the till in the area with at least several separate sources. It would make more sense to explore, find and do similar caustic fusion analysis to make an inventory of kimberlites that need bulk sampling, prior to doing this exercise on the Wolves.”
A summer exploration program is underway to identify additional kimberlites including esker and till sampling, in addition to focused airborne and ground geophysical surveys.
Last month the company announced its first set of diamond results from the spring drill program. The analyses reported more than 100 stones per 100 kg.
