- A soil sample collected in the upwind direction from the MSC Grid yields a positive diamond result.
- The diamond was recovered within 550 metres of the centre of aeromagnetic anomaly MX14.
- An ilmenite with kimberlite attached was recovered from a soil sample.
- The ilmenite has a close spatial association with aeromagnetic anomaly MX01, immediately east of the MSC Grid.
TORONTO, ONTARIO (September 29, 2015) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) is pleased to announce it has received positive soil sample results for the Company’s wholly-owned Malatswae Diamond Project (“Malatswae”), located 90 km southeast of the Orapa kimberlite field in Botswana.

- Anomalous number of kimberlite indicators found in soil samples
- Four white diamonds recovered in soil samples from two different areas
- MSC Grid area being reviewed in advance of the next drilling phase
- Two additional areas of anomalous concentrations of kimberlite indicators being considered for follow-up exploration
TORONTO, ONTARIO (March 3, 2015) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) is pleased to provide an up date for the Company’s wholly owned Malatswae Project in Botswana. Continue reading
- Picroilmenite microprobes indicate diamond preservation.
- Gravity and magnetic targets tested with drill holes.
TORONTO, ONTARIO (December 9, 2014) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) announces that it has received results from microprobe work on a set of priority kimberlite indicator grains (KIM’s) recovered at the Malatswae project. The Company also completed two drill holes at Malatswae.
- Sample MSCc154 recovered an intact fragment of garnet peridotite;
- Thirteen indicator minerals from nine additional samples have primary features including friable reaction mantles and possible adhering kimberlite;
- The grains are from two separate source areas in close proximity to the previously reported diamonds; and
- All indicator minerals exhibit features consistent with a proximal host rock such as kimberlite.
TORONTO, ONTARIO (November 7, 2014) – Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSX-V: PAN) (the “Company” or “Pangolin”) announces that it has received results from the Company’s recently completed detailed surface sampling program at its wholly owned Malatswae Project in Botswana, showing the recovery of additional kimberlite indicator minerals.

- 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
