Prima Fluorspar Corp. (TSX-V:PF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a property option agreement dated June 27, 2014 with DG Resource Management Ltd. whereby Prima can acquire an undivided 100% interest in and to 46 mineral claims covering more than 42,000 ha (104,000 acres) in the southern portion of the Slave Province, Northwest Territories. The claims are called the Godspeed Lake Diamond Property.
Reflecting its new focus on diamond exploration, the Company also announces that it has changed its name to “Prima Diamond Corp.” and will now trade under the symbol “PMD” on the TSX Venture Exchange which is subject to Exchange acceptance.
In 1991, diamondiferous kimberlites were first discovered in the Slave Province, Northwest Territories, leading to the largest staking rush in Canadian history. Three major diamond mines resulted – Ekati, Diavik and Snap Lake – making Canada the third largest diamond producer in the world, by value.
A new diamond mine in the Southern Slave Province in the Northwest Territories – Gahcho Kué – is slated for production in 2016 and is located immediately north of the Godspeed Lake Diamond Property.
Robert Bick, Prima President and CEO comments,
“Diamond exploration in Canada is attracting increased attention with world diamond supplies dwindling as several of the bigger mines decrease production while the demand for diamonds is increasing with particular growth in China and India.
The Godspeed Lake Diamond Project borders Gahcho Kué considered to be the world’s largest and richest new diamond mine. Godspeed is within 5 kilometers of the heart of the Kennady Diamond Kimberlite Cluster.
Godspeed is significantly under-explored compared with other properties in this area and represents excellent potential to discover additional kimberlites.
Prima’s work program will take advantage of innovative geophysical exploration methods not available during the 1990’s Canadian diamond rush.”
