Paragon identifies new diamond exploration targets in Lesotho

27 february 2012

Aim-listed Paragon Diamonds has identified highly prospective diamond exploration areas in the Lemphane-Roberts kimberlite field, in Lesotho.   
The diamond junior said in a statement to shareholders that it had had already applied for three new Prospecting Licences, which cover a total area of 74 km², over ground deemed highly prospective for diamondiferous kimberlites.
"We are confident that, given our track record in Lesotho to date, our applications will be considered most seriously, and will ultimately be successful,” said Paragon Diamonds managing director Stephen Grimmer.
“Very little diamond exploration work has been carried out in Lesotho since the 1970's - we see a tremendous opportunity to apply modern diamond exploration techniques to the area and are confident that this will generate additional positive results.”
The miner said recent fieldwork had also identified a further kimberlite dyke at a single outcrop, in excess of 1 metre wide, near to the initial Motete dyke discovery within the original licence area.
It said mapping and sampling of this feature would be expedited to “better” understand the relationship between this newly-discovered dyke and the known diamondiferous system.
Road construction, the miner said, had also commenced to gain vehicular access to the Motete Dyke, which will allow extraction of a 1,000+ tonne bulk sample to obtain an evaluation parcel containing a minimum of 1,000 carats.
