Diamond Fields' Liberia Gold discovery increases in size to cover an area of 3.52 km(2) and a strike length of 5.5 km


    CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Diamond Fields International Ltd.
(DFI:TSX) ("DFI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results from
their field sampling program of the Henry Town shear zone, situated in the
Grand Cape exploration permit in the Republic of Liberia. Compilation of these
and previous results shows the existence of near continuous anomalous gold
mineralisation over a strike length of 5.5 km and total surface area in excess
of 3.5km(2).
    The Henry Town area contains a shear zone hosted gold anomaly, which is
locally worked by artisanal miners. Soil samples collected from a 20 m by  200
m grid over a strike length of 4 km along the shear zone during the 2007 field
season have been analysed for gold by fire assay by Groupe de Laboratoire ALS
Mali Sarl., a division of the accredited international laboratory conglomerate
ALS Laboratory Group. Sample preparation included coning and splitting the
samples, prior to milling at the assay laboratory. A total of 1,370 samples
were assayed, of which 100 samples returned gold ("Au") values equal to or
greater than 0.1 g/t, 17 samples returned values greater than 0.5g/t Au, and 9
samples returned values greater than 1g/t Au. The highest recorded value
returned by the soil samples was 15.06 g/t Au. These data have been combined
with a prior soil sampling program sampled on a 200 m by 40 m grid undertaken
in 2005 to produce a gold soil sample anomaly map indicating near continuous
gold mineralisation over the 5.5 km of strike length of the shear zone sampled
using a value of 0.02 g/t Au to define the anomaly limits. The current sampled
limits of the anomaly encompass a surface area greater than 3.52 km(2).
    Further mineralisation of the Henry Town shear zone to the west southwest
and to the east northeast, beyond the limits of the current sample grid, is
indicated by stream sediment samples returning gold anomalies. Just under 50%
of the estimated strike length of 11.7 km of the Henry Town shear zone
situated within the limits of the Grand Cape permit has now been sampled. A
secondary splay shear zone to the Henry Town structure, located 1.5 km to the
south near the village of Guyama and which indicated gold mineralisation on
the basis of stream sediment sampling undertaken by DFI, is now being worked
by artisans crushing weathered schists in the top soil for native gold. The
Henry Town prospect appears to comprise a significant zone of quartz vein
associated gold.
    The Company is aggressively exploring the Henry Town anomalies by
extending the current sample grid to determine the limits of the gold
mineralisation of both the Henry Town and Guyama shear zones, as well as
undertaking a channel sampling program over the known extents of the gold
mineralisation to define drill targets. Drilling on the current anomalies is
programmed for beginning of 2008.
