Kennady Diamonds bulk sample indicates grade of 2.59 carats per tonne

26 december 2014

Kennady Diamonds Inc. reports that the latest bulk sample obtained at its wholly owned Kennady North diamond project confirm that the kimberlite has the potential to host a high-grade diamond resource, as reported in the press-release obtained by Rough & Polished.
Commenting, Kennady Diamonds CEO Patrick Evans said: "Based on drilling and sampling completed to date, we estimate that the Kelvin - Faraday kimberlite cluster has the potential to host between 9 and 12 million tonnes."
The bulk sample was recovered by drilling at the north lobe of the Kelvin kimberlite and was processed by dense media separation at the Geoanalytical Laboratories Diamond Services of the Saskatchewan Research Council.
The new bulk sample of 2.59 carats per tonne recovered at Kelvin is 40 percent higher in diamond concentration than the previous bulk sample that was taken last spring, explains Kennady Diamonds.
Overall, a total of approx. 27,200 meters was drilled at the Kelvin kimberlite in 2014, resulting in the recovery of approximately 55 tonnes of kimberlite. In addition to the results from the bulk sample, four tonnes of kimberlite from Kelvin has been processed by caustic fusion at the SRC, and one tonne has been processed by caustic fusion at the Rio Tinto diamond laboratory in Ontario. Diamond recovery results from the caustic fusion samples will be available in mid-January 2015.
