Eastport has two exploration licences in the Jwaneng area that span over 100 km2. The licences are located next to Debswana’s Jwaneng Mine, acknowledged as “the richest diamond mine in the world by value”, producing over 11 million carats per annum.
At present, three kimberlite pipes are known within Eastport’s Jwaneng diamond licences, with all three implying a long history of kimberlite emplacement in the area. The diamond content of the three kimberlite pipes is largely unknown and each appears to have been historically under-sampled.
The Kgare pipe is the most well understood of the kimberlites at Jwaneng, being diamondiferous, and having returned encouraging mineral geochemistry that is comparable to indicators found in Debswana’s Jwaneng mine.
Airborne Spectrem EM Survey
During the first quarter of 2022 an historic airborne survey was acquired and reprocessed, which resulted in the identification of several new kimberlite targets. In particular, six targets stand out as having coincident EM/Magnetic signatures that require drill testing. Ground surveys to locate the drilling positions are planned for the second quarter of 2022.
