Pangolin Recovers White Macro-Diamond

White Macro-DiamondGaborone: Pangolin Diamonds has recovered a white macro-diamond weighing 0.005484 carats from a soil sample on its recently acquired Malatswae project prospecting licence PL247/2014, in Botswana.

It said in a statement that a field team was now on site collecting follow-up samples on a close-spaced grid to help determine the significance of this discovery.

The Malatswae kimberlite project was located 70km southeast of the Orapa Mine. The project area hosts a number of kimberlite targets, it said.

Previous work by Pangolin demonstrated that the chemical compositions of garnets recovered in soil samples were distinctly different from the garnets from the Orapa kimberlite field, suggesting that an undiscovered kimberlite may be found within the project area. Apart from Malatswae, Pangolin also wholly-owns Tsabong North, Jwaneng South and Mmadinare projects, in Botswana.
