North Arrow said 745 diamonds larger than the 0.106 mm sieve size, including 23 larger than 0.85 mm, were recovered from a 209.7 kg sample of drill core. More than 95% of the stones are described as intact, white octahedrons and aggregates. Total weight of the +0.85 mm diamonds was 0.2815 ct.
The owner of the Pikoo property, Stornoway Diamond Corp. of Montreal, has given North Arrow the right to earn an 80% interest in the property by completing 2,000 metres of diamond drilling.
