High Quality, Commercial Sized Diamonds
Chris Taylor, CEO of Dunnedin Ventures talks about the company’s one hundred percent owned diamond project in Nunavut, Canada.
“Dunnedin is a Canadian diamond exploration company. We have a hundred percent owned project in Nunavut, Canada that we’re working on right now. We found a number of very high-quality commercial sized diamonds on our property. That’s really through working with our advisor and largest shareholder, Dr. Chuck Fipke. Chuck is famous for discovering Canada’s first diamond mine, that was the Ekati in the Northwest Territories. Because of Chuck Fipke ‘s exploration work back about 25-30 years ago, Canada is now a major diamond producer. So what he’s doing with us is applying the same sort of exploration and ranking techniques to define which kimberlites, there are many kimberlites on our project, should be drilled because the ones that he’s interested in have the best possibility of having high-grade diamond occurrences. We’ll be doing a great deal of drill work so now we’re testing the targets that have been selected as having very good diamond bearing potential. We’ve done bulk sampling of diamonds, I guess you’d call it mini bulk sampling, now there are a few times each. We found very good quality diamonds and high concentrations of diamonds so the samples that we’ve collected and range from about one carat per tonne, up to about four carats per tonne. So, these are high-grade Canadian diamond occurrences. For the balance of 2018, Dunedin we’ll be drilling diamond kimberlite targets that are selected for us by our advisor Dr. Chuck Fipke.” – Chris Taylor, CEO of Dunnedin Ventures
