snowycamp transporttrucks

Mobilization

Onsite transport of crews and moving equipment is via an onsite helicopter and snowmobiles. An ice spur road was constructed off the main winter road. Several loads of fuel and supplies for the current and proposed summer program were trucked to site.

Rig Mobilization - April 20, 2008

The Objective

The spring 2008 drill program concentrated on drill testing as many targets as possible from the approximately 40 untested priority anomalies picked for potential kimberlites. Targets materialized from numerous dogmag, ground magnetometer and airborne geophysics conducted plus various summers till sample programs for indicator minerals. Drilling first tested water-based anomalies in the northeast portion of the claim block.

Geophysics

Data collected and assessed from current ground geophysical surveys over targets significantly helps to pinpoint drill sight setups and target locations. Additional airborne geophysics was also completed to further identify and study targets. (see news release May 22, 2008.)

The Monument property is located on the south shore of Lac de Gras in NWT. Kimberlites of the Monument Property form part of the Lac de Gras cluster and occur within 40 kilometres of both the Ekati Diamond Mine (operated by BHP Billiton) and Diavik Diamond Mines Ltd. (operated by Rio Tinto), which together produce a noteworthy percentage of the world’s diamond production.

A total of 10 kimberlite pipes plus several unspecified related kimberlite dikes exist on the property. Untested targets include signatures with both positive and negative magnetic anomalies and weak electromagnetic conductors, some of which are under swamps and lakes. Significant diamond populations were found in five kimberlite pipes tested in 2006, Sonja, NIC, DD17, RIP and DD17-11. Lab results from two new discoveries Genie and Bling are pending.
