KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / September 8, 2021 / Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSXV:DMI), (OTCQB:DMIFF), (FRA:DC3A), ("Diamcor" or, the "Company") announced today that it has completed the installation of the first phase of planned upgrades ahead of schedule at the Company's Krone Endora at Venetia Project (the "Project"). The initial upgrades, originally targeted for completion by the end of September 2021, are aimed at providing the Company with the potential to increase the Project's processing volumes by up to 100%. The upgrades included the installation of a new materials handling step (scrubbing), improvement and expansion of the diamond concentration system, the installation of a new electronic diamond x-ray recovery unit, and various other refinements aimed at lowering water and power consumption on a per ton basis. All items of this first phase of upgrades are now operational and demonstrate their ability to achieve the desired processing volume increases. Final commissioning and minor refinements are expected to be completed over the coming weeks.
Phase One Expansion Highlights:
- Log-Washer Installation. The log-washer unit has been installed and replaces the large rotary wet scrubber with an aim to improve the removal of unwanted grit and soils prior to the introduction of gravels to the diamond concentration step. This item has been tested to full capacity and has demonstrated its ability to exceed planned throughput expectations.
- Dense Medium System Expansion ("DMS"). Expansion of the Project's DMS has been completed to effectively double throughput. A full recommissioning of the system was also successfully completed to ensure that efficient operation is not compromised at planned higher processing levels.
- Water and Power Footprint Reduced. Additional streamlining of the Project's processing plant included the removal of redundant pumps and systems to reduce the water and power footprint. Continued processing efficiencies in this area are seen as an essential element needed to support future upgrades and processing increases at the Project.
- Final Recovery Upgrades and X-ray Machine Installation. The addition of a new electronic X-ray diamond recovery machine was completed to support the phase one increases in processing volumes. Historical auditing of processed tailings highlighted a need to address final recovery inefficiencies, and thus the decision to implement upgraded technology in this area. Final commissioning over the next several weeks will ensure that increased volumes in this area are sustainable and diamond recovery is not compromised. Additional X-ray machines will also be added during the next phase of planned upgrades.
- Improved Processing Flexibility. The considerably improved capabilities of the upgraded processing plant are also aimed at providing greater flexibility in addressing variations in the mineral deposit and the processing of various gravel types in the corresponding broader areas of the Project.
- Support of Planned Phase Two Upgrades. The Company believes these initial upgrades will achieve the desired phase one goals as planned and serve as the building blocks for a planned second larger phase aimed at further enhancing throughput and processing volumes.
"We are very pleased with the efforts of our entire operational team under the direction of our COO, Dr. Kurt Petersen, and their ability to not only achieve these upgrades ahead of schedule, but also deliver the recent strong dollar per carat and gross revenue numbers to allow us to fund these efforts while dealing with the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic", stated Mr. Dean Taylor, Diamcor CEO. "Our focus will now shift to demonstrating the benefits of these efforts and their potential to increase rough diamond recoveries and revenue growth moving forward".

About Krone-Endora at Venetia
In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, consisting of the prospecting rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, which represent a combined surface area of approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent to De Beers' flagship Venetia Diamond Mine in South Africa. On September 11, 2014, the Company announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources had granted a Mining Right for the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project encompassing 657.71 hectares of the Project's total area of 5,888 hectares. The Company has also submitted an application for a mining right over the remaining areas of the Project. The deposits which occur on the properties of Krone and Endora have been identified as a higher-grade "Alluvial" basal deposit which is covered by a lower-grade upper "Eluvial" deposit. The deposits are proposed to be the result of the direct-shift (in respect to the "Eluvial" deposit) and erosion (in respect to the "Alluvial" deposit) of material from the higher grounds of the adjacent Venetia Kimberlite areas. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with a maximum total depth of approximately 15.0 metres from surface to bedrock, allowing for a very low-cost mining operation to be employed with the potential for near-term diamond production from a known high-quality source. Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its location directly adjacent to the Venetia Mine.

The Franelle Copper Project hosts 4 mineralized zones: Franelle, Bennelle, Beluet and Reuben.
The Franelle zone trends NNW 2600m along a 7000m long gabbro dyke with an average width of 60m to 75m. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides with some potential supergene enrichment. Mineralization occurs as dissemination within the gabbro and with veins, veinlets and stockworks cutting the gabbro and the metasedimentary host rock. Three programs of diamond drilling tested the gabbo between the mid 1970’s and the mid-1990’s. A historic resource was calculated in 1976. The Company will to review the historic data before disclosure. (Diamond Drill Logs, Lac Musset Property, 1995 Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report GM 53794).
The Bennelle zone consists of veins, veinlets and disseminations of copper mineralization intersecting a gabbro sill intruded into arkosic red sandstone. The Franelle and Bennelle zones may lie along the same gabbro. Mineralization consists of native copper, and copper oxides and sulfides, and has been traced 450m along strike and ranges from 1m to 3m in thickness. Grab sample highlights include 2.06% copper, 1.73% copper and 1.68% copper. (Source: “Gitologie Des Indices De Cuivre Du Lac Musset, Fosse Du Labrador par B. Brassard (1984), Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec Report MB84-03).
Mineralization at the Beluet zone is hosted in an altered shear zone within sandstones in fault contact with gabbros and consists of malachite, azurite and chrysocolla accompanied by chalcopyrite. The shear zone has been traced 50m along strike and is 5m thick. Grab sample highlights include: 6.15% copper and 4.83% copper. (Source: Metallic Deposit 23O/11-004 1995 Energie et Ressources Naturelles Quebec)

Benton and Sokoman Shares Rise After Confirming 1st High-Grade Lithium Discovery
Composite grab sampling returns 2.37% Li2OThunder Bay, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 16, 2021) – Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV: BEX) ("Benton") and…
Composite grab sampling returns 2.37% Li2O
Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 16, 2021) - Benton Resources Inc. (TSXV: BEX) ("Benton") and Sokoman Minerals Corp. (TSXV: SIC) (OTCQB: SICNF) ("Sokoman") (together, "the Alliance") are pleased to announce analyses for 35 of 58 follow-up samples from the recently discovered swarm of Lithium-bearing pegmatite dikes on the Golden Hope Joint Venture Project in southwestern Newfoundland. The 35 grab and chip samples were collected over a 1 km2 area over the swarm of poorly-exposed pegmatite and aplite dykes. The follow-up sampling has confirmed that the pegmatites carry significant Lithium values, the first significant occurrence of Lithium documented in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
- 31.4% of the samples gave values >1% Li2O
- The Lithium-bearing samples were taken over a poorly-exposed pegmatite swarm covering 1 km2
- Additional results are pending (23 samples) along a 1 km strike of pegmatites
- Lithium, Beryllium, Cesium, Rubidium and Tantalum values were located 2 km to the west of the initial discovery
Of the 35 samples, 11 gave values greater than 1% Li2O with three greater than 2% Li2O, and a high of 2.37% Li2O. The dominant Lithium-bearing mineral appears to be spodumene (LiAl(SiO3)2) which occurs as clusters of elongated prismatic crystals up to 5-cm-long in a grey-white matrix of glassy quartz and feldspar and a pale-green to white mica (see photo of sample 361716). Multiple samples from the aplite dikes give highly-anomalous Cesium (17 ppm to 508 ppm Cs), Rubidium (226 ppm to 1310 ppm Rb) and Tantalum (5 ppm to 179 ppm Ta), typical of evolved pegmatite swarms. Samples 361715-718 were a series of 0.5 m2 composite samples from the discovery outcrop that measures 10m x 3m and is 100% pegmatite. The dike margins are overburden covered and actual width of the dike is not known. All other samples were taken over the broader mineralized area. The following table gives the results for the composite samples and other higher-grade Li values from the area.

The Alliance also discovered high-grade Beryllium values with 2 grab samples grading >5000 ppm Be, with others ranging from 6 ppm to >5000 ppm Be, with associated anomalous Lithium, Cesium, Rubidium and Tantalum values. These samples, mineralogy unknown, are located approximately 2 km to the west of the Li discovery, providing further evidence that it is an evolved pegmatite system. Additional samples, taken up to 1,000 m along strike, have been submitted for analysis and are pending.

Samples were submitted to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario for analysis by Sodium Peroxide Fusion ICPOES + ICPMS.
Benton's President and CEO Stephen Stares states: "The discovery of this new Lithium, Beryllium, Cesium, Tantalum and Rubidium mineralization in Newfoundland continues to show the Island's vast potential. Although this is the first discovery of Lithium in Newfoundland, the geological environment and setting to discover these types of large systems have already been proven and discovered in the Appalachian belt. This includes the important deposits held by Piedmont Lithium Inc in the Carolinas, eastern US, as well as the geologically equivalent Avalonia Project being advanced by Ganfeng Lithium in the Caledonides of Ireland. Benton and Sokoman will use these deposits for synergies and modeling as we advance this new discovery towards drilling."
Sokoman's President and CEO Tim Froude adds: "We are very pleased to have unequivocally verified high-grade Lithium mineralization at Golden Hope, the first such significant occurrence in Newfoundland. While still early days, significant Lithium mineralization in similar geological settings, elsewhere in the greater Appalachian belt, bodes well for the potential of this discovery to be of significance to our shareholders. While continuing to explore the pegmatites for Li and associated elements, the claims were originally staked for gold and we are presently processing and merging our recently-flown airborne data with pre-existing data to highlight gold targets on the 750 sq km property."
The Alliance has completed a 5,709 line-km Heliborne, High-Resolution, Aeromagnetic & Matrix Digital VLF-EM Survey, flown by Terraquest Ltd. The survey will provide the structural/ lithological setting to help identify gold-bearing structure extensions, as well as any unrecognized structures including those potentially related to the Lithium-bearing pegmatites.
