Pangolin Diamonds Corp. (TSXV:PAN) announced that it has discovered one of the biggest kimberlites in the world at its Botswana-based Tsabong North project. Geophysical modeling suggests that it is a 270-hectare pipe.
According to the press release, highlights include:
- Geophysical modeling suggests the Magi-Kimberlite at Pangolin’s Tsabong North Project in Botswana is a 270 hectare (2.7 km2) pipe
- Drilling intersects the kimberlite across 1,200 metres at an average 35 metres below surface
- New findings build on earlier discoveries at the same site: High pressure garnet indicators have previously been recovered 14 metres above the Magi-Kimberlite
- Two new kimberlite drill targets in Tsabong North, both more than 170 hectares (1.7 km2), have been identified by the geophysical modeling
