DIAMOND EXPLORATION – Additional kimberlite intersections at Garnet Lake

WEST GREENLAND – HUDSON RESOURCES of Vancouver has announced recent drill results from its 100%-owned Garnet Lake kimberlite dike, near Sarfatog.

The four holes that have been completed confirm that the principal shallow-dipping reflector identified in the seismic survey is the Garnet Lake diamondiferous kimberlite dike. Drill holes have intersected the main kimberlite dike at locations 185 m, 320 m, 465 m and 720 m down-dip from the original diamondiferous subcrop. Kimberlite intersections are consistent with a dike that dips approximately 22 degrees easterly. All intersections along the main dike display the same physical characteristics as the diamondiferous kimberlite previously sampled at Garnet Lake. The average estimated true thickness of the combined kimberlite intersections from the main dike measures 3.94 m. The average estimated true thickness of the largest single continuous intersection from each drill hole along the main dike measures 2.58 m. Additional significant kimberlite dike intersections have been encountered at shallower depths including a 3.53-m body in the upper end of drill hole 06DS05.

The Company has completed five drill holes in 2006 and will continue testing targets throughout the summer. This will include drilling from the lakeshore to further test the target defined by drill hole 06DS01, which intersected 10.7 m of kimberlite at the bottom of a lake, 13 km northeast of the Garnet Lake dike. Hudson also plans to collect a mini-bulk sample this summer to test for diamond quantity and quality.

In 2004, the company located Greenland’s first highly diamondiferous kimberlite occurrence, which yielded 151 diamonds from a 108-kg sample at Garnet Lake. In 2005, Hudson found additional sources of significantly diamondiferous kimberlite in drill core at Garnet Lake. Find out more about the project at www.hudsonresources.ca.
