Joint venture partners ETRUSCAN RESOURCES and MOUNTAIN LAKE RESOURCES have officially opened their Tirisano diamond mine in South Africa. The big day was Nov. 5. Gerald McConnell, president and CEO of Etruscan, and Allen Sheito, president and CEO of Mountain Lake, welcomed a number of distinguished guests. Participants enjoyed a tour of the plant, views of the diamondiferous alluvial gravel runs, and the results of the ongoing exploration program. The exploration program on the property is confirming the continuity of the East gravel run over a 5-km length. Potholes with gravel to depths in excess of 60 m have been delineated.
