Little whose name had been put forward for re-election as a director passed away on June 3rd. The Company extends its sympathy to Leslie's family and will miss his valuable advice.
Following the formal business of the meeting a presentation of the Company's exploration program was made to all the shareholders in attendance. Data presented in the President's Message to the shareholders and the financing of a drill program was reviewed and discussed. Highlights are:
The Lena West area has indications of a major diamond field that has not yet been discovered. There is evidence that its numerous and widespread kimberlite indicator minerals (KIMs) and diamonds came from the direction of the Talmora property. The mineral chemistry of the Lena West KIMs does not match that of the Darnley Bay kimberlites to the north or that of the Dharma kimberlite to the southeast of Talmora but it does match that of the KIMs on the Talmora property.
The Talmora property contains many magnetic anomalies with characteristics of kimberlite pipes and they show a strong association with KIMs. It lies on a major regional structure associated with diamondiferous kimberlites and is enclosed within a mantle focused morphostructure favouring multiple kimberlite intrusions.
The Talmora property has not yet been tested by drilling. The global financial situation has made financing difficult but an attempt to fund a small program is being prepared.
