Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSXV:PAN) reported on a second diamond-positive area of soil sample results from its Botswana-based Mmadinare project, commenting that highlights include the discovery of an additional microdiamond and 281 ilmenite grains from 33 soil samples collected within Block 2 of the project.

As quoted in the press release:

The recovered diamond, sample MC30-63, has a maximum dimension of under 0.5 millimeters and is therefore defined as a micro-diamond.

The 281 ilmenite grains, an exceptional number of grains from so few samples, will be sent for Microprobe Analysis to characterize their provenance as either crustal, kimberlitic or lower mantle in origin. The micro-diamond was recovered from a sample that also contained eight (8) ilmenite grains. The Microprobe Analysis is expected to further refine the pattern observed. The results will be reported when received in the coming months.
