RAPAPORT... Kennady Diamonds Inc. intercepted kimberlite at its  first two drill holes on the Kennady North diamond property. Drill hole KDI-13-001 was drilled approximately 100 meters to the northwest of the main Kelvin kimberlite and intersected kimberlite over approximately 33 meters from a down-hole depth of approximately 62 meters.

Narrow seams of kimberlite were also intersected intermittently from approximately 207 meters to 215 meters, according to Kennady Diamonds.

A second hole, KDI-13-002,  was drilled from the same platform, but at a shallower inclination. This hole intercepted kimberlite at a down-hole depth of approximately 60 meters. Drilling of this hole continues.

Kennady Diamonds plans a winter drill program, encompassing 5,000 meters of drilling, and it has 2,000 meters remaining for the current program, which is expected to be completed by the end of May.
