Alto Ventures (TSXV:ATV) has recovered kimberlite indicator minerals from the West Fisher claims. The claims are 12 kilometers northwest of North Arrow’s (TSXV:NAR) Pikoo discovery, where the company recently reported discoveries of three new kimberlites.

As quoted in the press release:

Twelve of the 37 till samples collected from the West Fisher claims contain Cr-rich chromite KIM grains. Within these, there are five chromite grains from 4 different samples that are of particular interest as they contain very high chromium, ranging from 62.08% to 66.33% Cr2O3, which is above the usual 62% threshold for diamond inclusions.

Alto CEO, Rick Mazur, said:

The recovery of KIMs by Alto on the West Fisher claims is a strong indication that the diamond potential extends to the northwest of Pikoo. The recently announced discovery of three more kimberlites on the North Arrow Pikoo Property and delineation of multiple kimberlite indicator mineral dispersion trains on Alto’s adjoining GEFA Property provide further evidence that the North Sask Craton is emerging as a new diamond district in Canada.
