About Kennady Diamonds
Kennady Diamonds controls 100 percent of the Kennady North project which
comprises thirteen leases and claims located immediately to the north
and west of the four leases controlled by the Gahcho Kué Joint Venture
between De Beers Canada (51%) and Mountain Province (49%) located in
Canada's Northwest Territories.
Kennady Diamonds aims to identify a resource along the Kelvin - Faraday
kimberlite corridor of between 5 and 8 million tonnes and also to
identify new kimberlites outside of the corridor. This tonnage estimate
is based on the drilling completed to date. The potential quantity is
conceptual in nature as there has been insufficient drilling to define
a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will
result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
A 5,000 meter drill program conducted during the winter of 2013 returned
an exceptional sample grade of 8.44 carats per tonne. The largest three
diamonds recovered were a 2.48 carat off-white transparent octahedral,
a 0.90 carat off-white transparent irregular, and a 0.75 carat
off-white transparent octahedral. The recovery of diamonds of this size
and quality from a 1.1 tonne sample is very encouraging.
