Miner finds drillable targets that likely hold diamondiferous kimberlite structures in Botswana

10 december 2012

Botswana Diamonds said detailed follow up ground gravity and ground magnetic surveys on a number of previously identified anomalies at its wholly owned prospecting licence in the Letlhakane area of Botswana have outlined a number of drillable targets, which could hold diamondiferous kimberlite structures.
It said in a statement that the prospects which rated highest on the technical evaluation had been selected for drilling.
A percussion drill rig was also being mobilised and would begin drilling five holes by end January, it said.
“We are very pleased with our progress in Botswana, which remains the best place in the world to find diamonds,” said company chairperson John Teeling.
“We have selected a number of drill sites on our wholly-owned licence and will drill five of the targets early in 2013.  Based on our findings we have applied for two adjacent licences.”
He said the whole area was known to be prospective with diamonds, garnets and other diamond indicator minerals found in earlier work but Kalahari sand and basalt cover made exploration difficult.
“Our team, using newer and refined computer techniques believes that it can identify prospective kimberlite structures below the overburden,” he said.
Meanwhile, Teeling said that Botswana Diamonds’ joint venture with a large multinational diamond company was producing positive results.
“I hope to report on this in the very near future.” PL170/2012 lies 30kms east of the large Letlhakane diamond mine.
The year-long 50/50 joint venture project had been analysing data on opportunities in the North East Orapa area of Botswana.
