The proceeds of the Placing will be used to accelerate evaluation work at the Company's BK11, BK16 and Tsabong projects in Botswana. At the BK11 and BK16 projects the company plans to recover about 1,000 tonnes of kimberlite for processing. The company hopes to recover between 100-150 carats from each bulk sample.

The Company also intends to accelerate evaluation work at its Tsabong project, where it has identified 14 high interest kimberlites for bulk sampling by large diameter drilling.

Results from a number of the other high interest kimberlites are expected to be released in Q3 2008.

FDI are now undertaking advanced evaluation of 14 kimberlites, including the 180 hectare M1, and 75 Hectare MK31 kimberlites. Encouraging core samples have been found on five of the kimberlites tested thus far, and micro diamond and indicator mineral analysis is under way on these.

Firestone has purchased a £500,000 bulk sampling plant, which is due to be commissioned in Tsabong Town, in November, and commence operations in January 2008. Infrastructure is already in place for the 10 ton per hour plant to operate efficiently. Between 20kg and 30kg bulk samples are planned to be processed during 2008.

Philip Kenny, CEO of Firestone Diamonds, commented: "With 81 kimberlites discovered to date in Tsabong, of which 14 are diamondiferous, the objective for Firestone is to identify and evaluate the kimberlites with economic potential as rapidly as possible. We have made excellent progress in the six months since we commenced our evaluation programme and we now have a much better understanding of the geology of the area and the kimberlites in our portfolio".

This news was well received by the market, with FDI up 1.33%, albeit on low volumes.]]>

Firestone Diamonds identifies four more kimberlites at Tsabong https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/462/firestone-diamonds-identifies-four-more-kimberlites-at-tsabong-0778.html
Firestone recently acquired the rights to explore the Tsabong Kimberlite field in southern Botswana, and since initiating exploration in November 2006, have identified seven kimberlites brining the total number of known kimberlites to 74.

The four kimberlite discoveries announced today ranged in size from 8 hectares to 28 hectares. Drill chip samples from the exploratory drilling program are now on route to laboratories in Canada and South Africa for mineral chemistry, petrographic and micro diamond analysis.

A separate 6000 meter drilling program expected to start in Q1 2007 which will test 17 kimberlites that are known to be diamondiferous. Firestone intends to drill up to 500 meters in depth to test the various phases of the kimberlites and recover enough drill cores to carry out a more detailed analysis of the economic potential of the kimberlites.

CEO Philip Kenny added: “The discovery of seven large kimberlites in our first two months of exploration at Tsabong is a very significant achievement. We are still an early stage of our exploration programme, and with many more targets remaining, we believe that there is good potential for the discovery of new, large-tonnage diamondiferous kimberlites. With 74 kimberlites in our licence area and the prospects of more discoveries being made, we believe that Tsabong has the potential to produce a major economic discovery.”
