Pangolin Recovers Additional Diamonds on the Malatswae Project, Botswana

  • Follow-up detailed soil sampling recovers two additional diamonds;
  • The diamonds are undergoing SEM observation to aid in characterizing their distance from source;
  • Detailed trace element analysis of each sample coupled with indicator minerals also recovered in the samples will be used to further refine targets in the immediate vicinity.

TORONTO, ONTARIO (September 11, 2014) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V:PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) announces that it has recovered two additional diamonds on its wholly owned Malatswae Project in east-central Botswana. Samples MSCd067B and MCDd095A, collected during a close-spaced follow-up sampling program of an earlier macro-diamond discovery (see Pangolin’s news release of 22 July 2014) contained diamond. Each 20kg sample was collected on a 200m x 200m grid in an area of approximately three square kilometres. In total 244 samples were collected; two at each station. A number of samples also reported ilmenite; a common kimberlite indicator mineral. Continue reading
