Kennady Diamonds Inc. said the final diamond recovery results from a Kelvin 2.67 tonne sample recovered by core drilling at the Kelvin North Lobe returned an exceptional sample grade of 3.40 carats per tonne for diamonds of commercial size. Kennady Diamonds President and CEO Patrick Evans commented: “Kelvin North Lobe drill samples continue to return outstanding diamond recovery results. Over the course of 2015 we have processed by caustic fusion a total of 12.8 tonnes of core samples from the Kelvin North Lobe, which have returned an average sample grade of 2.79 carats per tonne. Planning is now well underway to recover an approximate 500 tonne bulk sample from the North Lobe in February/March next year, with results expected by mid-2016. The bulk sample is expected to deliver more than 1,200 carats to support revenue modeling for the Kelvin kimberlite.”
