Dianor Announces Delay in Closing of Initial Draw Down Under Equity Line of Credit

VAL-D'OR, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2010) -


Dianor Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DOR) announces that it has not completed a previously-announced initial draw down of $500,000 under its equity line of credit with Kodiak Capital Group, LLC.

As previously announced (press releases September 27th 2010 and October 5th 2010), Dianor sent a notice to Kodiak Capital for an initial draw down of $500,000 under the equity line of credit, and announced that it would issue 7,269,555 common shares to Kodiak Capital at a price of $0.06878 per share, at a closing to be held not later than October 8, 2010. Kodiak Capital has not to date provided the $500,000 required by Dianor's draw-down notice.

Dianor intends to advise Kodiak Capital that the failure to provide the funds constitutes a default under the Amended and Restated Standby Equity Distribution Agreement dated July 9, 2010, between Dianor and Kodiak, as amended. There can be no assurances that Kodiak will fund the draw down in a timely manner.

"Needless to say, we are disappointed that Kodiak Capital has not completed the initial draw down under the equity line of credit" said John Ryder, Dianor's President and CEO. "We are examining all of our options with a view to closing the first draw down as soon as possible."

About Dianor

Dianor is an innovative exploration company focused on advancing diamond exploration properties in the Superior Craton of Canada. The Leadbetter Diamond Project is its most advanced project and is geographically well situated and easily accessible, some 12 kilometres north east of Wawa in Northern Ontario. Substantial exploration work has been conducted on the project since 2005 and in May 2009, the Company received government approval to proceed with a 50,000 tonne bulk sampling programme of the 2.697 Ma old Archean Conglomerate. A preliminary tonnage estimate for this conglomerate is in the range of 549 million to 583 million tonnes (press release July 24th 2007). In addition to diamonds, the conglomerate contains gold, sapphires and rubies (press release January 18th 2007). In 2008, additional diamond discoveries, including rare purple diamonds, were made by the Company in rocks of similar type, age (Archean) and geological settings (press release March 3rd, April 10th, & May 13th 2008) in Quebec. The Quebec diamond properties have increased our portfolio of low cost, accessible exploration targets. These diamond discoveries (Ontario and Quebec) are both unique and amongst the oldest diamond-bearing occurrences in the world.
