Pangolin Receives Positive Kimberlite Indicator Analyses for Malatswae Diamond Project, Botswana

  • Laboratory reports an abundance of positive kimberlitic ilmenites from soil samples
  • Kimberlitic ilmenites from the Malatswae Diamond Project are distinctly different to ilmenites from the Orapa AK1 Diamond Mine confirming separate source area
  • Clinopyroxenes of both eclogitic and peridotitic paragenesis from the earth’s mantle present in samples
  • Primary surface textures on numerous indicator minerals and clinopyroxenes indicative of proximal source.
  • Close geographical association between anomalously positive samples and previous selected high priority aeromagnetic targets currently being followed up with detailed ground surveys and additional soil sampling.
