“We are very pleased to form this alliance with DES who have an excellent team with a proven record in diamond exploration and discovery in Botswana,” said HER managing director Peter Ravenscroft.
"The alliance provides EHR with turn-key entry into one of the world’s leading diamond jurisdictions with an experienced local shareholder. EHR shareholders gain immediate exposure to any potential discoveries, and have a path forward to share in further development of any new diamond projects.”
DES will conduct all exploration activities using alliance funding and EHR will have an option to sole fund a scoping study on a designated project to earn-in to a 70% ownership interest, with a further option to reach a 90% ownership interest by sole funding a feasibility study.
