Vancouver - Drill results from the Monument diamond project in the Northwest Territories have its joint-venture owners excited about the possibility of finding sizeable stones.
Monument, which sits on the shores of Lac du Gras, is truly a joint venture. New Nadina Explorations (NNA-V) owns 57% of the property and acts as the operator. But the junior is more than open to suggestions from its partners, which include two of the men who first found diamonds in Canada's north. Stu Blusson, who found the kimberlite pipes that feed the Ekati mine, is the head of 21%-owner Archon Minerals (ACS-V). The other 22% is held by Chris and Jeanne Jennings; Chris Jennings was a key member of the team that identified the resource behind the nearby Diavik diamond mine.
