NAPAKTUKIK LAKE, Nunavut The spring 2003 exploration program on TAHERA CORP.’s Rockinghorse property will include bulk sampling (a minimum of 2.5 t) from the Anuri kimberlite. The property is located about 150 km from Tahera’s Jericho project, which will be Nunavut’s first diamond mine.

KENNECOTT CANADA EXPLORATION is earning a 62.5% interest in the Rockinghorse claims by funding exploration and making a development decision by 2008. The Anuri kimberlite was discovered in July 2001 and has been confirmed to be diamondiferous. Drilling in the area also identified a second pipe, Anuri East. Whether the two kimberlites are part of a single structure has yet to be determined.
