Botswana Diamonds Recovers First Diamond in Cameroon Exploration

Botswana Diamonds is pleased to announce that it has recovered a 2 carat diamond at its sampling project at Libongo in the Cameroon. The diamond is a low value, near gem quality stone. A 300 tonne bulk sample has been taken from a palaeoplacer conglomerate identified by Botswana Diamonds in 2011 and is being processed. The objective was to confirm the diamondiferous potential of the deposit.

Libongo is a very remote site in dense rainforest in eastern Cameroon. The 400 sq km licence lies adjacent to the Mobilong diamond mine being developed by CNK Mining of South Korea. Heavy rains and equipment breakdowns have delayed the processing of the material but the full results are expected to be known by the end of Q3 2012.
