TORONTO, ONTARIO July 31, 2018 – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) is pleased to provide an update on the drilling programme at Pangolin’s 100% owned Malatswae Diamond Project, Botswana, Africa.
- Two diamonds recovered at surface in excess of 1mm in long axis size
- BH1 – Kimberlitic garnets with Class 1 surface textures recovered at a vertical depth between 21.6 and 26.9 m
- BH2 – Kimberltiic garnets with primary surface textures recovered at a vertical depth between 47.6 m and 52.8 m
- BH3 – Kimberlitric garnets with primary surface textures recovered at a vertical depth between 21.6 and 26.9 m
- The combination of the soil sample and drilling results are indicative of a diamondiferous kimberlite dyke system at MAL 001
- Once core drilling is completed, a mini-bulk sample of at least 100 tonnes will be undertaken to determine the diamond content for the kimberlite
- Two diamonds recovered from 4 hectare soil sampling grid
- 100 Positive kimberlite indicators confirmed through microprobe analysis
- G10 and other garnets indicative of a diamondiferous mantle present
- A pristine forsteritic mantle derived olivine with 0.51 wt% NiO amongst the indicators analysed
- A groundmagnetic survey has been completed over the area where the diamonds and indicators were found
- MAL 001 to be drilled once Gravity and EM surveys completed to assist in identifying drill positions
TORONTO, ONTARIO (May 8, 2018) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) is pleased to announce it has recovered two diamonds and 100 positive kimberlite indicators from a 4 hectare soil sampling grid at the MAL 001 drill target located in the Company’s wholly-owned Malatswae Project (“Malatswae”).

- The MG-08 is an oval shaped target measuring approximately 4 hectares in size and the second kimberlite target confirmed within the project area
- It is a near surface and groundmagnetic anomaly
- Anomalous concentration of positive kimberlite indicator minerals recovered at surface
- The indicator minerals are characterized by surface textures indicative of their source to be close
- Several other targets are being developed over the next few weeks
- The Motloutse drill program is anticipated to be completed before the end of July 2016
- Drilling at the Malatswae Diamond Project is still on schedule for the second half of 2016
TORONTO, ONTARIO (June 13, 2016) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) is pleased to provide an update for the Company’s wholly-owned Motloutse Diamond Project (“Motloutse”), located 150 km east of the Orapa Diamond Mine in Botswana. Several aeromagnetic anomalies have been selected for follow-up with soil sampling, ground magnetic and gravity surveys to identify kimberlite drill targets. This process identified MG-08 as the second kimberlite target in addition to AGA-01 previously announced (see May 31, 2016 release). Other targets are still being developed as the data is being processed and interpreted. Continue reading

TORONTO (miningweekly.com) – After recently announcing that it had discovered one of the largest-ever kimberlite pipes at its Tsabong North project, in Botswana, TSX-V-listed exploration junior Pangolin Diamonds is on the lookout for a partner to develop the project that is shaping up to be far larger than ever thought.
Pangolin last week announced that it had discovered a 270 ha kimberlite pipe, making it comparable with the Se251 kimberlite in Angola that measures 220 ha, the MK1 kimberlite in Botswana that measures 180 ha, and the Mwadui kimberlite in Tanzania, which measures 146 ha.
“The first thought that ran through my mind when I heard that we had indeed found a 270-ha-large kimberlite, instead of two separate pipes was: ‘We need a big partner’,” Pangolin chairperson Dr Leon Daniels told Mining Weekly Online in an interview on Friday.
