The joint venture implemented a ground geophysical program at Diagras in Spring 2017. Field crews completed ground magnetic, ground gravity and ground electromagnetic (EM) surveys on 11 target areas. The comprehensive survey program (Table 1) was designed to further evaluate areas near known kimberlites as well as explore new target areas that were generated from public domain data.
Table 1. Kimberlite and kimberlite like targets evaluated in the Spring 2017 program.
|Kimberlite or Target||Magnetics (Line Km)||Gravity (Line Km)||EM (Line Km)|
|Kong (East / West)||18.72|
|Total Line Km||129.44||22.83||22.40|
2018 Exploration Program
The next phase of evaluation at Diagras calls for expanded ground geophysical programs to cover areas proximal to other known, previously defined kimberlites in order to expand the number of drill ready targets. All necessary regulatory approval has been received to proceed with a future drill program at Diagras.
