Diamond Discoveries Completes 2005 Field Exploration Program 'DMDD'

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 18, 2005) - Diamond Discoveries International Corp. (OTCBB:DMDD) has been informed by Watts, Griffis and McOuat (WGM) that the 2005 field exploration program on the company's Torngat diamond property in northern Quebec has been completed. WGM was engaged to carry out the independent field program that was led by legendary prospector Peter Ferderber from 1999 to 2004.

The primary objectives of the WGM field program were:

1) the independent replication of previously reported diamonds recovered from three of the known kimberlite dykes;

2) independent field sampling of drainages associated with airborne anomalies selected by Patterson, Grant and Watson (PGW) and sample sites selected by WGM to confirm prior results;

3) ground magnetic confirmation of all potential targets that were readily accessible;

4) rock chip sampling of newly discovered and previously untested dykes associated with airborne anomalies; and

5) to the extent possible, test by drilling selected airborne anomalies with the diamond drill already available on the property,

"The five main objectives of the 2005 program have been achieved" said Joe Hinzer president of WGM "We expect to receive the results of the sample analyses over the course of the next four to eight weeks and will prepare a complete report as soon as all the analytical data has been received and reviewed"

2005 Program Summary

1) WGM is continuing the compilation of all available geophysical, geological and geochemical data

2) Dr. Harrison Cookenboo of WGM carried out an initial visit to the property in mid August to collect independent confirmation samples from the kimberlites previously reported as diamondiferous and to examine other known dykes on the property

3) PGW selected 40 anomalies, 10 as first priority, 23 as second priority and 7 as third priority targets. WGM had previously selected 20 preliminary targets almost all of which are included in the PGW list. WGM visited all 40 geophysical target sites selected by PGW and all the preliminary WGM target sites.

4) Rock chip samples were collected from those targets with outcrop or exposed dyke structures. Alluvial samples from the closest drainages were collected from all targets with no rock exposure. Ground magnetic surveys were completed over all accessible priority targets. Two drill holes were also completed. WGM collected 40 samples (approximately 32 alluvial and 8 rock chip samples) in addition to the three confirmation samples. Ground magnetic surveys were completed over 35 of the targets. A total of 219.5 metres of NQ core were drilled to test two separate airborne anomalies.
