High success rate for Kennady North drills

Kennady Diamonds Inc. Oct. 19 reported the successful completion of a 9,561-meter summer drill program at its Kennady North diamond project in Nunavut. One rig primarily focused on the Faraday 1-3 kimberlite complex, and the second rig was focused on Faraday 2.

Towards the end of the program, two infill delineation holes were completed on the Kelvin kimberlite in order to refine the kimberlite pipe shell in two specific areas of this most advanced kimberlite at Kennady North.

"Excluding three holes that were abandoned due to technical issues, twenty-nine of the thirty holes completed during the program hit kimberlite, representing a 97 percent success rate. This is a great achievement for our exploration team," said Kennady President and CEO Rory Moore.
