[Middle English kerling, from Old Norse, from karl, man.] Resources Corp. is pleased to provide an update on the company's diamond exploration project in Ghana, West Africa.
Field work begun in October continues to follow up bedrock diamond targets generated by last season's bulk stream sediment surveys, geophysical surveys and laboratory diamond studies. Over 300 field laborers are presently employed on the project. Since October, 216 reconnaissance pits have been excavated on bedrock targets and saprolitic (clay) bedrock samples from 130 of those pits have been processed at the company's on site washplant. Results to date have revealed five zones of ultramafic ul·tra·maf·ic

Diamonds grading up to 0.5 carats per cubic meter have been recovered from two of these zones, both in the vicinity of Kokotintin Hill. Initial indications are that these zones may be more than 25 meters wide.
A program of trenching on all five ultramafic bedrock zones has begun to test both widths and diamond grades. Results from the remaining 86 reconnaissance pits and the ultramafic bedrock trenches will be released on an ongoing basis.
