Delta Mining and Exploration Releases Bulk Sample Post Field Memo Provided by Apex Geoscience

MISSOULA, MT--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - In an effort to update its shareholders on the progress of the bulk sampling program, Delta Mining and Exploration (PINKSHEETS: DMXC) is pleased to release the post-field memo drafted by Apex Geoscience Ltd. (

The post-field memo provides specific information regarding the bulk sampling program conducted on the Homestead target. The memo describes why Apex deemed it necessary to further pursue the Homestead property and what may be potentially uncovered.

Below is an excerpt from the memo. The full document can be viewed at

"The target weight of each subsample was determined by its inferred diamond potential. The HK phase, containing a high proportion of unusually large (up to 70 cm) potentially diamond bearing mantle xenoliths and more coherent macrocrystic kimberlite has the highest diamond potential. In contrast, the Breccia phase contains abundant limestone and shale crustal xenoliths both as large > 1 metre rafts and finer centimetre scale fragments which downgrades its diamond potential. Due to their large size and relative proportion within the HK it was determined a third subsample of mantle xenoliths was warranted."

Currently, the samples taken this past month are being held at the laboratory's storage facility awaiting its turn for analysis. The company will issue an update as soon as it made aware of the results.
