Diamonds North Using EM to Generate Kimberlite Target on Amaruk Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 19, 2011) - Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DDN) announces that it has received electro-magnetic (EM) data for the eastern side of the Amaruk Property in the Pelly Bay Diamond District, Nunavut. The data is currently being interpreted for target selection which is expected to be completed within a few weeks.

"For the first time we are able to extract kimberlite targets using EM which could provide a major breakthrough," says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Diamonds North.

This data is believed to penetrate through conductive overburden which covers most of the Amaruk Property. A small test survey completed in 2010 yielded several sizable priority targets, many of which exhibit an association with kimberlite indicator minerals (See news release March 24, 2011).

The Company believes that EM data is extremely important for identifying kimberlite targets in Canada and has played a lead role in discovering economic kimberlites at the Ekati Diamond Mine, Diavik Diamond Mine as well as high value kimberlites at the Gahcho Kue Diamond Project.

In addition to diamond exploration the Company is positioned with several gold projects including the Esker Property. To view a video presentation of the Esker Gold Property, visit our website www.diamondsnorth.com.
