The company started construction of an advanced exploration camp at Kelvin Lake to support year-round drilling.

The existing camp, Bob Camp 20 km to the west, will continue to serve as a regional exploration camp for the Kennady North project.

Bulk sampling at Kelvin is anticipated to start early in 2015 and the company is considering the possibility for a 500 to 700 tonne bulk sampling program by large-diameter reverse-circulation (RC) drilling.

Kennady Diamonds CEO Patrick Evans said: "After three months of drilling this summer/fall, we have increased the strike of the Kelvin kimberlite pipe to over 600 meters.

"As we have moved north, delineation drilling has confirmed that the vertical and horizontal dimensions of the pipe are increasing. Besides the increasing volume, the Kelvin pipe remains open on strike to the north and we have yet to find the feeder pipe to the Kelvin-Faraday kimberlite complex."

Kennady controls 100% of the Kennady North diamond project located next to the north, west and south of the Gahcho Kué diamond mine, which is currently being developed by De Beers and Mountain Province Diamonds.
