Diamondex Resources/Shore Gold Announce Buffalo Hills Exploration Program

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2007) - Diamondex Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DSP) ("Diamondex") and Shore Gold Inc. (TSX:SGF) ("Shore") are pleased to announce a $7.0 Million Exploration Program for the Buffalo Hills Project located in northern Alberta. (See www.diamondex.net for project location and description).

Under this exploration program, a 14,000 metre delineation drill program will focus mainly on the central corridor of the Buffalo Hills property. This program will commence in the north at K91 and work progressively south to BH225, K14, K252, K6 and ultimately K5. It is anticipated that the drilling will begin in late January 2008, and will take approximately 3 months to complete.

The primary goal of the program is to drill test the best kimberlite pipes discovered to date with sufficient density to allow for the identification of the different kimberlite phases present and characterize their key characteristics, including micro diamond content, to allow for the construction of accurate geologic models. This exploration program will provide key information that will prioritize which pipes on the Buffalo Hills Project should be bulk sampled during follow-up campaigns. Encore Coring & Drilling of Calgary, Alberta will provide two Schramm 685 drills capable of routinely recovering PQ sized drill cores. All drill cores will be logged and analyzed at Shore's facilities in Saskatchewan.

Diamondex and Shore acquired Stornoway Diamonds Corporation's share of this project in July 2007 for a total cash consideration of $17.5 million. Pursuant to the acquisition, Shore and Diamondex each acquired a 22.5% interest in the Buffalo Hills Joint Venture, in which Encana Corporation holds a 43% interest and Pure Diamonds Exploration Inc. holds the remaining 12% interest. Diamondex and Shore can increase their combined interest to 72.5% by spending $15 million prior to April 30, 2010. Diamondex is the Operator of the Buffalo Hills Joint Venture with Diamondex and Shore each contributing 50% of the exploration expenditures.

The Buffalo Hills Project is the third largest known district of significantly diamond bearing kimberlite in Canada after Lac De Gras in the Northwest Territories and Fort a la Corne in Saskatchewan. Previous exploration on this project by Ashton Mining, Encana and Pure Diamonds from 1997-2006, totaled $30 million, which resulted in the discovery of 38 kimberlites, 26 of which are diamondiferous. These kimberlites range in size from 1 to 47 hectares. Six mini bulk samples were also carried out, with the largest bulk sample conducted at K14 where 479 tonnes were extracted yielding a grade of 12 cpht. A 22.8 tonne sample extracted from K252 yielded a grade of 55 cpht.
