    Kennady Diamonds announces results

    NWT - Kennady Diamonds Inc. (TSX-V: KDI) announced recently the diamond recovery results from its Faraday 2014 spring drill program at its 100 per cent-controlled NWT Kennady North diamond project. Kennady Diamonds CEO Patrick Evans stated in a press release, “The Faraday (kimberlite) sample grade of 5.10 carats per tonne is outstanding and amongst the highest diamond sample grades recorded in Canada. This result confirms that the Faraday kimberlite has the potential to host a high grade diamond resource.”
    This result was from 933 kilograms of kimberlite.
    Kennady’s Kennady North diamond project is near the proposed Gahcho Kue diamond mine currently under development. The company hopes to identify a resource along the Kelvin – Faraday kimberlite corridor of between five and eight million tonnes and also to identify new kimberlites outside of the corridor. There has yet to be sufficient drilling to define a mineral resource.
    Work continues on the property.

    Peregrine prepares rights offering

    IQALUIT - Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. (TSX:PGD) announced last week the company is preparing a rights offering to fund its planned 2015 bulk sampling program on its Chidliak diamond property 120 kilometres northeast of Iqaluit.
    Peregrine has identified eight potentially economically viable kimberlites on the property. An inferred mineral resource of 7.47 million carats in 2.89 million tonnes of kimberlite at a grade of 2.58 carats per tonne has been defined for a portion of one kimberlite. This year, Peregrine has been drilling three other kimberlites to define bulk sample targets for next year.
    Tom Peregoodoff, Peregrine executive vice-president of business development, said “the objective of this rights offering is to allow us to complete our bulk sample program in 2015 and deliver a PEA (preliminary economic assessment) in the first quarter of 2016.”
    The rights offering should be finalized within two weeks, pending B.C. Securities Commission approval.
