BRC Diamond Completes Combination With Diamond Core And Trading To Commence On The TSX

Toronto, Canada - February 11, 2008 - BRC DiamondCore Ltd. (formerly named BRC Diamond Corporation) (the "Company") (TSX - "BCD"; JSE - "BCD") is pleased to announce that it completed today the acquisition of all of the outstanding shares of Diamond Core Resources Limited ("Diamond Core"), thereby effecting the merger of its business with Diamond Core's business.

As the consideration for this acquisition, the Company issued to Diamond Core shareholders one common share of the Company for every 24.5 Diamond Core shares held (subject to the rounding of fractional shares), such that the Company now has outstanding approximately 25.74 million shares and former Diamond Core shareholders now hold approximately 47% of the Company's outstanding shares. Concurrent with this transaction, the Company has changed its name from BRC Diamond Corporation to BRC DiamondCore Ltd. and its shares have been approved for listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"). The Company's shares are expected to commence trading on the TSX this morning under the ticker "BCD" and will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange concurrent with the TSX listing. The Company's shares began trading on the JSE Limited in Johannesburg on February 4, 2008 and will continue to trade on the JSE Limited under the new name under the ticker "BCD".

Mike de Wit, President of the Company, said: "Although the merger of the businesses has only become effective today, our teams have been working together for several months and the activity level in the field has been increasing through this period of corporate activity. We have made great progress on prioritizing and mobilizing exploration teams to the earlier stage projects, particularly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, while trial mining continues at the Silverstreams and Paardeberg projects in South Africa. We look forward to providing ongoing positive results as our portfolio of projects begins to shine through the first half of this year."

Theo Botoulas, CEO of the Company, stated: "Mike and I are of a single mind - that our skills can add the most value in the field, which is where we have kept our focus. Fortunately, we have a great team alongside us and strong advisors that delivered on creating this merged business that we are all excited about. Integration of people is complete, systems and facilities are coming together well, and the group is now in an excellent position to deliver on our new vision as the growth-focused, African diamond company."

BRC DiamondCore Ltd. is an African-focused diamond explorer active in South Africa and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Led by a management team with extensive experience in diamond exploration and mine development, the Company has a broad spectrum of projects ranging from advanced stage trial mining operations through grass-roots exploration. The Company's projects comprise both prospective alluvial gravels and primary kimberlite targets. In all of its operations, the Company's ethos is to proactively work in a responsible manner to discover, assess and, where feasible, develop diamond resources for the benefit of its shareholders and local stakeholders. The Company maintains listings on the TSX and the JSE, in each case under the ticker "BCD".
