  • Advanced stage diamond project covering 522 hectares discovered by DeBeers.
  • Up to eight kimberlite pipes identified on the project so far (J1 to J8).
  • J1 and J2 kimberlite pipes have already proven to be diamond bearing.
  • Active drilling and bulk sampling programme on all pipes to commence soon.
  • The Jaibaras diamond pipes have world class size potential and initial work is highly encouraging.
  • 10t bulk samples collected and processed from J01 and J02 kimberlite pipes with high quality white macro diamonds recovered from both pipes. In particular J02 pipe results indicated the potential for an economic grade.
