Diamond Frank Exploration Has Begun its Drilling Campaign at Destorbelle

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2011) - Diamond Frank Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DOD) announced today it has commenced its 2011 drilling campaign on the Destorbelle Project with Typhoon Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: TYP).

The drilling program will focus on north-west of the Fayolle Deposit to confirm the geological model defined during the geoscientific compilation conducted in 2009-2010 by Typhoon Exploration Inc.

The drilling strategy is oriented to intersect N-NW structural features that were developed by Diamond Frank Exploration Inc. and Typhoon Exploration Inc. This new drill pattern permits a better understanding of the relationship between intrusive dykes and mineralized zones, which are distributed within an E-W striking deformation corridor.

The Destorbelle Property, 50% owned by Diamond Frank and 50% owned by Typhoon Exploration, is located less than 8 kilometres west of the Fayolle Deposit, where Typhoon Exploration is currently conducting a 50,000 meter drilling campaign. It is also located in the heart of Abitibi's developing mining projects.

See location map below:


Mr. David Mc Donald, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Frank Exploration Inc., stated: "The mineralized auriferous zone located northwest of the Fayolle Deposit represents a priority target that will be systematically explored. As demonstrated in the nearby mining camp, several economic deposits were found to extend as deep as 1,000 metres."

All exploration work is being carried out under the supervision of Ressources Lutsvisky Inc. acting as project manager.


All drill cores are oriented using Fordia's "Corientr" tool in order to measure their geological structures. Cores are sawn in half, with one part kept as a control and the other being analysed. Assays are performed with standard fire assay procedures and atomic absorption finish. Certified reference material, duplicates and blanks are inserted in the sample sequence for quality control. Primary assaying are performed by ALS Chemex of Val d'Or. The rejects for all samples returning >10 g/t Au are completely pulverized and re-assayed.
