Botswana Diamonds Updates on the Exploration Fieldwork Recently Completed in Botswana by Sunland Minerals

The Directors of Botswana Diamonds announced an update on the exploration fieldwork recently completed in Botswana by Sunland Minerals. Sunland Minerals is a joint venture between Botswana Diamonds and Alrosa and the fieldwork was carried out by a combined team of geologists on Prospecting Licences PLs 206-210 in the Orapa region. Work on the ground comprised of heavy concentrate sampling of soil, hard rock sampling, in-field mineralogical analysis, electromagnetic surveying and ground magnetic surveying. The results of the follow-up analysis conducted by the joint venture team on both the geophysics and geochemistry highlight a strong geological anomaly on PL210, considered prospective for the discovery of kimberlite and will be drilled in September 2015. On both PL206 and 207, further soil sampling and electromagnetic work is required to establish the source of the kimberlite indicator minerals. In addition to the next stage of exploration in Orapa, work will also begin in Gope on PLs 135 and 136 where two magnetic anomalies have been identified. A rapid programme of soil sampling and transient electromagnetic surveying will be conducted to confirm the anomalies and the precise drill targets.

Botswana Diamonds Expands Exploration with Three New Licences in the Central Part of Botswana

The Directors of Botswana Diamonds announced that the Botswana Government have awarded three Prospecting Licences (PL135/2015, PL136/2015 and PL137/2015) to Sunland Minerals, the exploration joint venture company owned equally between BOD and Alrosa. The licence areas cover 46 sq. km, 48 sq. km and 3.3 sq. km respectively and are located in the central area of Botswana. The licences PL135/2015 and PL136/2015 were selected specifically to verify previously identified geophysical anomalies (both magnetic and gravity) and to follow up if justified. PL137/2015 contains mineralogical anomalies with kimberlite indicator minerals, namely pyropes, ilmenites and in particular chrome diopsides. Chrome diopsides (garnets) are relatively soft and do not travel far from the kimberlite source and it is, therefore, considered worthwhile to conduct follow-up exploration of these indicators on this small licence area. The Alrosa and Botswana Diamonds geoscientists will focus immediately on the target areas using small grids to carry out detailed geophysics and to acquire mineral chemistry data with the aim of making rapid decisions regarding potential drilling.
