Kennady Diamonds has completed the infill drill program at the Kennady North diamond project in Northwest Territories, Canada.

The program has been completed with the drilling of hole KDI-15-057 at the project.

Drilling of all, except two, Kelvin geotechnical holes were completed. The firm intends to complete the drilling at remaining two holes by mid-September.

Kennady Diamonds president and CEO Patrick Evans said: "The Kelvin infill drilling has been very successful and we expect the results to add to our previous Kelvin tonnage estimate."

The company has started further delineation drilling at the north lobe of the Kelvin kimberlite, as the fourth drill rig mobilized at the site. It has designed the Kelvin drill hole KDI-15-054b to cut-off the lower portion of the Kelvin pipe.

Located around 25km to the west of the Kelvin camp, exploration drilling at the MZ kimberlite allowed the firm to detect around 3m wide sheet structure dipping at around 15 degrees to the northeast.

The firm has 100% interest in the Kennady North project that includes thirteen leases and claims. It is situated next to the north and west of the four leases controlled by the Gahcho Kué Joint Venture between De Beers Canada and Mountain Province.
