Delrand Resources Identifies Numerous High-Interest Diamond
Targets For Follow-up Work
- Delrand has identified numerous high-interest targets for further
follow-up work subsequent to a review of a large diamond
exploration database, as part of an agreement with Rio Tinto,
covering areas in southern DRC well in excess of 100,000km?.
Toronto, Canada ? May 30, 2013 ? Delrand Resources Limited (?Delrand?
or the ?Company?) (TSX-DRN; JSE-DRN) reports progress on its diamond
exploration activities in southern Democratic Republic of the Congo
Exploration work continues in the Kasai region of the southern DRC,
where Delrand has signed an agreement with Rio Tinto to interpret a
large diamond exploration dataset that covers areas well in excess of
100,000km? (the ?Agreement Areas?) which were explored between 2004
and 2008 by a number of companies using modern exploration techniques.
The work has so far identified numerous permits with samples that
contain lherzolitic garnets formed under minimum pressures of 53.4
kilobars and hence well within the diamond stability field. These
garnets, which are also associated with abundant kimberlitic ilmenite,
are therefore likely to be derived from kimberlites that are diamond-
This data in conjunction with Delrand?s own large database, which it
has built up since 2004 from its own program of stream and soil
sampling and airborne and ground geophysical surveys, provides Delrand
with the largest exploration database for diamonds over one of the
most prospective and least explored areas in the world ? the Kasai
Craton, producer of most of the DRC?s historical production of over
1.2 billion carats. Through this arrangement, the Company will earn
into any discoveries that result from this work over the Agreement
Commenting on recent exploration activities Dr. Mike de Wit, the
Company?s President, said: ?Delrand has a focused exploration
programme assisted by its agreement with Rio Tinto. Delrand has itself
amassed and obtained access to a considerable amount of exploration
data. The Company is now processing and further exploring arguably one
of the most comprehensive DRC diamond exploration data bases that have
ever been assembled.?
Dr. Mike de Wit, President of the Company and a "qualified person" (as
such term is defined in National Instrument 43-101), has reviewed and
approved the technical information in this press release.
