NORTHERN ONTARIO – DIANOR RESOURCES of Val d’Or, Quebec, has recovered 1,562 diamonds from hole Chab 05-10, which intersected 137.30 metres of diamond-bearing conglomerate on its Leadbetter property near Wawa. The largest diamond measured 2.45×2.48×2.06 mm and weighed 0.08 ct. It is described as a colourless, clear, broken stone. A table of the caustic fusion results for the hole are posted at www.Dianor.com in the Press Room.

Dianor has five diamond prospects in Ontario and Quebec, and Leadbetter is currently the focus of its efforts. The company is earning an 80% interest from prospector Joseph Leadbetter. Drilling began in April 2005.
