Pangolin recovers two more diamonds from Botswana’s Malatswae project

15 september 2014
Pangolin Diamonds has recovered two additional diamonds at its wholly-owned Malatswae project in Botswana.
It said that samples MSCd067B and MCDd095A were collected during a close-spaced follow-up sampling programme of an earlier macro-diamond discovery in July.
The diamonds would now be viewed with a scanning electron microscope to characterise the surface textures and features, with the work to help in finding out the proximity to the source of the two stones, after which size determinations will be made.
Pangolin said the three diamonds recovered to date within the area of detailed sampling are found within one square kilometre.
The Malatswae kimberlite project covers 1,058 square kilometre and was located 70km southeast of the Orapa Mine.
Previous work by Pangolin showed that the chemical compositions of garnets recovered in soil samples are different from the garnets at the Orapa kimberlite field, suggesting that an undiscovered kimberlite may be found within the project area.
