  • A completed percussion drill programme returned positive kimberlite indicator minerals at depths between 74 and 98 metres.
  • The magnetically positive pipe shaped anomaly is approximately 10 hectares in size.
  • A 200+ metre core drilling programme has been initiated to confirm kimberlite as the source of the magnetic anomaly and kimberlite indicators.
  • A diamond has been recovered at surface proximal to the drill target.
  • Drill results will be announced once all the data has been received and interpreted.

Pangolin Drills into Kimberlite Dyke, Botswana Africa; Mini-Bulk Sample of 100 Tonnes Planned to Determine Diamond Content

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

  • 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

Mining Weekly: A diamond in the rough, Pangolin tracks diamond-bearing kimberlites

Pangolin was featured in Mining Weekly. Click here to read the full article.

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.
