KELOWNA, BC, March 30 /CNW/ - Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V:DMI) (the "Company"), wishes to announce that, further to its news release of February 9, 2010, the Company is now finalizing the second and final tranche of its previously announced private placement financing. As previously announced each unit under the financing has a price of $0.30 and consists of one Company common share and one half of one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.50 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the second tranche. The Company anticipates closing the second tranche within the coming weeks, and with the first tranche of $2,152,121.00 (gross proceeds) now closed, the gross proceeds of the second tranche will be held in escrow pending the successful closing of the previously announced De Beers Krone-Endora acquisition, which is now in the final stages of completion, and receipt of final TSX Venture Exchange approval of the acquisition.

All private placements are subject to regulatory and/or final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange along with completion of all definitive documentation and filings as required. Securities issued pursuant to the above will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the closing.
