Canadian International Minerals Inc. (TSXV:CIN) announced that it has recovered kimberlite indicator minerals from the Pikoo East properties in East-Central Saskatchewan.

The properties are under option to North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV:NAR) and Stornoway Diamond Corp. (TSX:SWY), and those two companies are conducting work there under their joint venture on the Pikoo diamond project.

As quoted in the press release:

North Arrow and Stornoway conducted a limited reconnaissance-type till sampling program on the Properties in the fall of 2014. 11 till samples were collected and submitted to Microlithics Laboratories Inc. of Thunder Bay, Ontario for kimberlite indicator mineral processing. Details on the processing method can be found at www.microlithics.com/kim-laboratory/

One sample on the southern part of Pikoo Extension A returned a pyrope garnet with chemistry fitting the G9 garnet classification. This same sample also returned a picroilmenite, another strong kimberlite indicator mineral.

The Company considers the results to be very encouraging given the limited scope of the fall 2014 sampling program. These results, along with recent KIM sampling results reported by Strike Diamond Corp. (TSXV: SRK) and Alto Ventures Ltd. (TSXV: ATV), confirm the prospectivity of the area to the east and northeast of the Pikoo project. Additional KIM sampling is planned for 2015.
