Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. (TSX:PGD) (“Peregrine” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed its 2017 work program at its 100%-owned Chidliak Diamond Project (“Chidliak”) near Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. The program was completed on schedule on September 8, 2017, with a total of 5,288 metres drilled in 15 core holes utilizing three drill rigs.
As quoted in the press release:

Tom Peregoodoff, Peregrine’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are pleased to have successfully completed the 2017 drill program. We have confirmed that the high grade CH-6 kimberlite pipe extends beyond 500 metres below surface and remains open at depth. In addition, the 2017 program has expanded the kimberlite within the 260 metre base of the existing Inferred Resource, which could significantly add to the total carat count in the current Inferred Resource. Finally, the completed 2017 drilling and sampling of kimberlite material deeper than 260 metres below surface, currently classified as a Target for Further Exploration, could provide additional significant uplift to contained carats as we look to announce an increased diamond resource later this year.”
