Pangolin Diamonds Corp. noted that at its wholly-owned Malatswae Diamond Project, an additional 78 soil samples from the MTS grid have been confirmed to contain kimberlite indicator minerals. The MTS grid is where pyrope garnets with near-source features were previously reported.

The Malatswae Diamond Project is located southeast of the Karowe Diamond Mine of Lucara in Botswana.

Pangolin President and CEO Dr. Leon Daniels comments, “These latest results continue to build upon previous data for the MTS grid that suggest that undiscovered kimberlites are present within the MTS grid area. The data will be used to help us to better refine our targets, in concert with ground geophysics which will commence in the coming weeks.”

In the findings, Pyrope garnet has been visually-confirmed in 62 of the 78 grid samples and ranges from 0.4-1.0mm in maximum dimension. The indicators were recovered within a 10 square metre area of a GPS-controlled sample site.
