RJK Explorations Ltd. (RJX) has intersected kimberlite during a drill-testing program.

The news was revealed today in an update on the company’s exploration efforts at the Kon Property, which is located in Cobalt, Ontario.

Last month the company utilised a drone magnetic survey in order to prioritise targets on the property, combining this data with data about the Kon Property’s existing Kimberlite mineralisation.

“We are very pleased with the initial drilling on the Kon Claims. This new discovery of kimberlite in a world class mining camp is the result of a year of dedication by the RJK team and I would like to thank them for their hard work,” stated President and CEO, Glenn Kasner

Kimberlite is a type of igneous rock which can be indicative of diamond deposits. The area has never previously been drilled for potential as a diamond mine.

RJK Explorations Ltd. has a three-year option on the property.

Further targets have been identified on the property and they will be drill-tested throughout the next few months. Additional drone surveys will also be taken to identify targets for later drill testing.

The hunt for diamonds is being fuelled by the historical discovery of The Nipissing Yellow Diamond over a hundred years ago, which was estimated to weigh 800 carrots

RJK Explorations Ltd. stock has leapt up over 230% since last November when they announced their expansion into the Kon Kimberlite regions of Cobalt.

RJK Explorations Ltd. (RJX) stock remains unmoved, with shares currently trading at C$0.30.
