Botswana Stock Exchange (BSE) listed diamond explorer Botswana Diamonds has announced that a further drilling programme on its Thorny River diamond prospect in the Limpopo Province of South Africa will begin Monday, 19 April 2021.
Following the discovery of the River kimberlite pipe including 11 diamonds, 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 was identified. Analysis suggests a potential for a larger kimberlite body than already identified.
Following the completion of earthworks during the course of this week, a six-hole reverse circulation programme will start on Monday,19 April 2021. The programme is expected to take two weeks with the results announced shortly thereafter.
Recently the diamond company said it is preparing to re-enter Zimbabwe and focus on both short-term production targets at Marange and advanced kimberlite pipe projects elsewhere in partnership with Vast Resources plc.
The company further said that Zimbabwe is highly prospective and there are positive signs that the country is open for business.
