TORONTO ( – Canadian explorer Pangolin Diamonds on Tuesday said it had unearthed high-pressure garnets that could indicate the presence of more than one diamond-bearing kimberlite pipe on its Tsabong North project, in Botswana.

The TSX-V-listed company said independent lab analysis returned a significant number of high-pressure garnets associated with the diamond stability field, which is the area of the earth’s mantle with the heat and pressure required to produce diamonds, which for the company confirmed a high exploration potential for new diamondiferous kimberlite pipes in the area.
