SASKATCHEWAN With Star kimberlite bulk sampling program completed, STAR GOLD says it has decommissioned the exploration shaft at the site. All equipment has been removed from the underground workings and the shaft has been capped with a steel plate. The headframe, hoists and related equipment will remain on site pending a decision to commence an underground bulk sample on one of the kimberlites within the Orion Cluster, at which time the equipment will be relocated.

More than 70,000 t of kimberlite have been recovered from the Star underground bulk sampling program. Final tonnages and diamond grades will be published as soon as all remaining surface stockpiles of kimberlite have been processed through the on-site dense media separator (DMS) plant and the diamonds recovered at the laboratory of SGS LAKEFIELD.

Photos of the lovely diamonds recovered from the Star kimberlite may be seen at www.ShoreGold.com.
