Two New Kimberlites Discovered at Arctic Star’s Timantti Diamond Project in Finland

publish:2019-10-10

Arctic Star Exploration Corp announced the discovery of two new kimberlites; made as a result of trenching work by excavator undertaken at its Timantti project in Finland.

The newly discovered kimberlites, located near the Vasa dykes – also discovered by Arctic Star by excavator in 2018 – are situated two kilometres north of the company’s three Wolf kimberlites (Black, Grey and White Wolf).  

The recent work exposed two new “heavily weathered clayey kimberlite bodies both less than 1.5 metres from the land surface in a heavily forested area”, the Company said.

While the Karhu discovery has been confirmed as kimberlitic by scientists of the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK), engaged by the company to assist in the exploration programme; final confirmation and results of the laboratory analysis of the Plug body are awaited.

The Company added: “The yellow clayey material recovered from the Plug body appears to be identical to that found at Karhu and the company geologists are confident this is also a new kimberlite discovery.”
