RAPAPORT... Kennady Diamonds Inc. recorded a grade of 2.59 carats per tonne of ore from its Kelvin summer/fall mini-bulk sample program, an increase of 40 percent from the diamond grade recovered from a 25-tonne mini-bulk sample  earlier in the year. The summer/fall sample was recovered by drilling at the north lobe of the Kelvin kimberlite and was processed by dense media separation at the Geoanalytical Laboratories Diamond Services of the Saskatchewan Research Council.

Patrick Evans, the CEO of Kennady Diamonds, said,  "We are very pleased with the latest diamond recovery results, which confirm that the Kelvin kimberlite has the potential to host a high-grade diamond resource. Based on drilling and sampling completed to date, we estimate that the Kelvin – Faraday kimberlite cluster has the potential to host between nine and 12 million tonnes. Drilling to extend the strike of the Kelvin kimberlite to the northwest will resume in mid-January."
