North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV:NAR) has provided an update on its Timiskaming, Luxx and Mel Diamond Projects, including exploration plans for 2014. Highlights included the identification of high priority targets at Luxx, plans to prospect targets identified in a 2013 magnetic survey at Mel and the commencement of mineral chemistry evaluation of drill core samples from Timiskaming.

As quoted in the press release:

North Arrow and Stornoway Diamond Corporation (TSX-SWY) have commenced an evaluation of four of the seven kimberlites that form part of the Timiskaming Project joint venture in northeastern Ontario and northwestern Quebec. The program will use approximately 3,300 kg of archived drill core from the 95-1, 96-1, Baby and SC-118 kimberlites to complete a comprehensive evaluation of the mineral chemistry of each kimberlite, and to evaluate their potential to host a coarse diamond population. The diamond evaluation will consist of processing a series of micro-DMS samples for the recovery of +0.3 mm diamonds. Due to small sample sizes, this work will not be definitive, however the recovery of even single +0.3 mm diamond from any of the bodies would have positive implications for the project and could result in the need for new drilling to delineate and better assess the kimberlite. The mineral chemistry work will complement the extensive project database and allow for interpretation of locally anomalous till sample results in the vicinity of the kimberlites and evaluation of untested drill targets in these areas.
