Diamond Drilling to Commence on the Doctor Lake (Sahtu) Project

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - Patrician Diamonds Inc. ("Patrician") is pleased to announce that diamond drilling on the Company's Doctor Lake project will commence in early May. Cabo Pacific Drilling Corp. has been selected to carry out the proposed work. Six to eight holes comprising a total of 1000 metres of drilling will be completed during the program.

The Doctor Lake project is located approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Norman Wells in the Northwest Territories. In 2006, the Company recovered weathered kimberlite beneath two metres of till at the site of the Hillside magnetic anomaly. This was the first kimberlite discovery in the Sahtu District. As part of the current work, core drilling of the Hillside Kimberlite will be done to obtain samples of unweathered rock for microdiamond analysis. Drilling will also be done to test five other large magnetic anomalies that lie along two structural corridors east and southwest of Hillside.

Mr. Paul Pitman, P.Geo. is the qualified person for Patrician under National Policy 43-101.
