NORTHERN ONTARIO – DIANOR RESOURCES of Val d’Or, Que., says the fourth dill hole at its Leadbetter diamond property has extended the mineralized trend. Core from the hole Chap 05-11, 200 metres east of the previous hole, yielded 2,014 diamonds recovered by caustic fusion by the Saskatchewan Research Council. The largest stone measured 2.80 by 1.60 by 1.34 mm and weighed 0.04 carat.
The results from the first four drill holes, drilled in the northern sector of the Leadbetter property, are nearly identical to those recovered from similar size samples taken from surface bedrock in the vicinity of the drill holes during the due diligence phase of the exploration, says Dianor. These early diamond results from the drilling in conjunction with the surface diamond results also indicate diamond continuity through the conglomerate both laterally and at depth in this area of the northern sector.
