The story behind Botswana Diamonds plc Thorny River project.
Botswana Diamonds (BOD LN) 0.725p, Mkt Cap £4.2m – Drilling defines bulk sampling targets at Thorny River Botswana Diamonds reports that, following the recent completion of its “intensification drilling programme” on the Frischgewaagt and Hartebeestfontein farms at its Thorny River project in South Africa, it has now completed a total of 3,299m of drilling in 77 drillholes, enabling it to plan a bulk sampling programme over 3.9km of kimberlite fissures distributed across five target areas. The bulk sampling programme “will commence after the necessary regulatory approvals have been received; these are expected during the course of Q2 2019”. The Thorny River project is located adjacent to the former Marsfontein and Klipspringer diamond mines and in November last year the company announced that it had reached a contractual agreement with “an experienced mining contractor”, Palaeo Minerals to undertake both bulk sampling and future full scale mining at the project. Conclusion: We look forward to the outcome of the bulk sampling work at Thorny River in due course.
Botswana Diamonds Plc (BOD.L) Announced, an update on Thorny River project development, that the intensification drilling programme has been concluded on the farms Frischgewaagt and Hartbeesfontein which form part of the Thorny River project.
