Kennady Diamonds Inc. (TSXV:KDI) announced that it has begun a summer drill program at its Northwest Territories-based Kennady North diamond project.
As quoted in the press release:
A minimum of 5,000 meters of drilling will be undertaken with the focus on delineation drilling at the Kelvin and Faraday kimberlites as well as exploration drilling at the MZ and Doyle kimberlites and at four new exploration targets.
Drilling at the Kelvin kimberlite is being undertaken with two drill rigs. The first drill rig is conducting delineation drilling at the northern edge of the Kelvin northwest lobe where last spring’s drill hole KDI-14-018 intersected undiluted kimberlite over 80 meters, with substantially all of the kimberlite to the north and outside the current geological model. This drill rig will then move to drill a ‘fence’ of holes from northeast to southwest along the western shore of Kelvin Lake to test the continuity to depth of the Kelvin kimberlite dyke, which dips to the northwest at approx. 15 degrees.
