Dual-listed diamond explorer Botswana Diamonds will begin a further drilling programme on its Thorny River diamond prospect, in South Africa’s Limpopo province, on April 19.
Following the discovery of the River kimberlite pipe, the company upgraded the potential of the property.
An area with a similar geological and geophysical footprint immediately to the east of the River Pipe has been identified.
Analysis suggests potential for a larger kimberlite body than already identified.
Following completion of earth works during the course of this week, a six-hole reverse circulation programme will be undertaken.
The programme is expected to take two weeks to complete, with the results to be announced shortly thereafter.
