Diamonds North Starts Copper-Silver-Bismuth Exploration Project at Hepburn

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2011) - Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DDN) announces that the 2011 exploration program has begun on the Hepburn property in the Northwest Territories. The program will focus on delineating areas of concentrated mineralization for drilling using induced polarization (IP) surveying and prospecting.

"The Hepburn property has already demonstrated high copper silver potential along with bismuth, uranium and gold credit. Successfully identifying drill targets on this property would be a significant advancement," says Mark Kolebaba President and CEO of Diamonds North.

Initial grab samples from the property returned values up to 19.8% copper, 123.0 grams per tonne silver, 0.20% uranium and 0.17% bismuth. These showings appear to be associate with a 3.5 kilometre by 1.5 kilometre magnetic high which is semi-coincident with a radiometric anomaly detected by airborne surveying. Anomalous gold values suggest the system is gold bearing (see news release March 4, 2010).

In addition to the Hepburn property the Company is actively exploring for gold on Southern Nunavut properties including the Esker Property. To view a video presentation of the Esker Gold Property, visit our website
