Diamond Discoveries 2006 Quebec Exploration Program Underway

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 6, 2006 -- Diamond Discoveries International Corp. (OTCBB: DMDD) is pleased to provide a summary of its initial 2006 Quebec exploration plans. As per the Company's news release of May 8th, 2006, DMDD has entered into an option agreement with Tres-Or Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: TRS) ("Tres-Or") to explore for diamonds on Tres-Or's Quebec property. Tres-Or's Quebec property is located near the town of Notre Dame du Nord, and includes 5 known kimberlites, including 2 discovered by Tres-Or in 2004.

The Timiskaming region of Ontario and Quebec hosts diamond-bearing kimberlites including Contact Diamond Corp.'s significantly diamondiferous 95-2 pipe, and has the potential for discovery of large diamond-bearing bodies, as demonstrated by Tres-Or's large (+ 21 hectare) Lapointe Kimberlite discovery in 2005.

DMDD's initial exploration of the property will focus on 4 target areas as follows:

1.   A priority magnetic target with a signature consistent with a
     kimberlite pipe;
2.   Exploration of satellite pipes and potentially untested phases
     associated with the Guigues kimberlite pipe;
3.   Extension of Tres-Or's ND-63 kimberlite dyke discovery of 2004; and
4.   Exploration of a strong kimberlite indicator mineral train in the
     southern part of the property.
News from these exploration programs will be released as soon as results become available, and further exploration activities on the Quebec project will be announced in the near future.
