About Krone-Endora in Venetia

In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora project in Venetia from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, comprising the exploration rights to the Krone 104 and Endora 66 farms, which represent a combined area of ​​approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent to De Beers. lighthouse of the Venetia diamond mine in South Africa. On September 11, 2014, the Company announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources had granted a mining right for the Krone-Endora project to Venetia covering 657.71 hectares of the total project area of ​​5,888 hectares. The company has also submitted a request for mining rights on the other areas of the project. The deposits on the Krone and Endora properties have been identified as a higher grade “alluvial” basal deposit that is overlain by a lower grade upper “eluvial” deposit. It is proposed that the deposits result from the direct displacement (with respect to the “Eluvial” deposit) and erosion (with regard to the “alluvial” deposit) of materials from the higher terrains of the adjacent regions of Venetia. Kimberlite. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with a maximum total depth of approximately 15.0 meters from surface to bedrock, allowing a very low cost mining operation to be used with the potential for diamond production. in the short term from a known high level. quality source. Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its location directly adjacent to the Venetia mine.
