About Dianor

Dianor is an innovative exploration company focused on advancing diamond exploration properties in the Superior Craton of Canada. The Leadbetter Diamond Project is its most advanced project and is geographically well situated and easily accessible, some 12 kilometres north east of Wawa in Northern Ontario. Substantial exploration work has been conducted on the project since 2005 and in May 2009 the Company received government approval to proceed with a 50,000 tonne bulk sampling programme of the 2.697 Ma old Archean Conglomerate. A preliminary tonnage estimate for this conglomerate is in the range of 549 million to 583 million tonnes (press release July 24th 2007). In addition to diamonds, the conglomerate contains gold, sapphires and rubies (press release January 18th 2007). In 2008 additional diamond discoveries including rare purple diamonds were made by the Company in rocks of similar type, age (Archean) and geological settings (press release March 3rd, April 10th,& May 13th 2008) in Quebec. The Quebec diamond properties have increased our portfolio of low cost, accessible exploration targets. These diamond discoveries (Ontario and Quebec) are both unique and amongst the oldest diamond bearing occurrences in the world.
