NORTHERN ONTARIO With the good news that its recently discovered KL-22 kimberlite pipe is diamondiferous, SUDBURY CONTACT MINES has been staking additional ground. The company has quadrupled the size of its Klock property to 36,000 hectares from 7,500 hectares.
According to the company, the magnetic signatures for the KL-22 pipes cover approximately 9.5 hectares. Along with the 95-2 and KL-01 pipes, both of which have a surface area of about 5.0 hectares, Sudbury Contact is hoping that it has a potentially large-tonnage project in hand.
The Klock claims are part of Sudbury Contact's wholly-owned Timiskaming diamond project, located just west of the town of Cobalt. The project now covers an area of more than 65,000 hectares, making the company the single largest landholder in the area.
