Diamond Discoveries Receives Torngat Property Lab Data

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 1, 2006 -- Diamond Discoveries International Corp. (OTCBB: DMDD) is pleased to announce that it has now received all the laboratory reports for the 31 alluvial samples collected during the 2005 work program on the Torngat Property. These alluvial samples were collected by Watts, Griffis, and McOuat (WGM) to test airborne anomalies identified from the 2005 airborne survey and for independent confirmation of previous sampling. Samples were collected from accessible drainages at or near anomalies and previous samples for verification.

The samples were all processed for kimberlite indicator minerals by Saskatchewan Research Council Geoanalytical Laboratories, which is accredited to the ISO/IEC 17025 standard by the Standards Council of Canada as a testing laboratory for specific tests.

SRC reports recovering a total of 138 kimberlite indicator minerals (KIMs) from 14 of the samples. The two most prolific samples, accounting for 104 of the grains (including 5 Cr-pyropes, 6 chrome diopsides, 5 chromites, 6 picroilmenites, and 85 olivines) occur in close proximity to each other, and to a priority magnetic target identified from the airborne magnetic survey completed last summer (August, 2005). Follow-up ground magnetics confirmed an anomaly consistent with kimberlite near the sample sites, which is associated with the extension of a previously identified kimberlite dyke. The entire suite of 138 indicators include 11 pyropes, 8 chrome diopsides, 108 olivines, 8 picro-ilmenites and 3 chromites.

Evaluation of this target is being planned by WGM for the 2006 summer field season. Follow-up work will include additional sediment sampling and ground geophysics, with drill testing of targets to ensue if results warrant.

WGM senior associate geologist, Dr. Harrison Cookenboo, P.Geo. has reviewed the data and approved the contents of this release.
