About the Kahuna Project

 

Dunnedin’s primary asset is the Kahuna project, where it is completing final steps to earn a 100 percent interest.  Kahuna is an advanced stage high grade diamond project located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.  Dunnedin is now recovering diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples collected from two seasons of field work.  An Inferred Resource released by Dunnedin showed over 4 million carats of macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) at a grade of 1.01 carats per tonne had been defined along the partial strike length of the Kahuna and Notch kimberlite dikes through shallow drilling, and remains open to extension.  The largest diamond recovered was a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was a piece of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats.  Recent results include a 2.03 tonne sample of the PST kimberlite dike which returned 223 macrodiamonds totalling 8.17 carats (+0.85 mm) and a 2.36 tonne sample of the Notch kimberlite which returned 89 macrodiamonds totalling 2.38 carats (+0.85 mm).

 

The Kahuna project is located adjacent to the development-stage Meliadine gold project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and has generated gold results in tills, bedrock and drill core across a wide area.  Gold is associated with several metasediment belts that cross the project.  The adjacent Meliadine project is also hosted by metasediments and has approximately 14.5 million tonnes of Proven and Probable Reserves grading 7.32 g/t gold, containing 3.4 million ounces of gold as of December 31, 2015.   There is an additional Indicated Resource of 20.7 million tonnes grading 4.95 g/t gold containing 3.3 million ounces of gold, and an additional Inferred Resource of 14.7 million tonnes grading 7.51 g/t gold containing 3.5 million ounces of gold (source: www.agnicoeagle.com).

Most of the PST diamonds recovered by Dunnedin are clear and colourless variants of octahedra. No historical or current resource numbers are available for PST, however recent interpretive work by Dunnedin suggests it has a potential strike length of up to 2.5 kilometres based on historical drilling and geophysical surveys.

Figure 1:  All diamonds recovered from the 1.17 to 2.36 mm commercial-size fraction of sample PST 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2016, Dunnedin determined that the PST, Notch and other kimberlites have intruded a gold-mineralized metasediment belt that has yielded gold in drill core, and pristine, locally sourced gold grains in tills.  Some of the highest gold-in-till values observed through Dunnedin’s work come from the immediate vicinity of PST, with gold mineralization also noted in outcrop and boulders within 200 m of the kimberlite.

 

About the PST Kimberlite

 

  • Near vertical high grade kimberlite dike that is exposed at surface
  • Historical and current samples were taken at the same locations or within metres of each other
  • Drilling is limited to 200 metres of strike and to a maximum depth of approximately 50 metres; remains open along strike and at depth
  • Extends north under thin gravel cover, however diamondiferous kimberlite was drilled 1.2 km away directly along strike, coincident with magnetic and resistivity signatures that suggest potential continuity of up to 2.5 km
  • Insufficient exposure and drilling to define width; more work is required
  • One of several diamondiferous kimberlites discovered thus far within a 2 km radius, including Notch, Killiq and 07-KD-24. The latter is notable for having historically recovered 305 diamonds including 7 macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) from a 2.2 kg (0.0022 tonne) drill core sample

 

The PST sample was treated through an autogenous mill-fusion circuit located at CF Mineral Research Ltd. of Kelowna, British Columbia, using a lower size cut-off of 0.425 mm.  Unlike standard DMS recovery methods, the circuit can recover nearly all diamonds present in a kimberlite to the predetermined cut-off size, along with associated indicator minerals.

New Kimberlite Pipe Targets with Diamond Potential Identified at Kahuna

June 5, 2017 – Vancouver, BC, Canada. – Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Dunnedin”) (TSX-V: DVI) today reported the identification of new kimberlite pipe targets with down-ice till chemistry matching known diamond-bearing kimberlite dikes at the Kahuna project.  These are priority drill targets for 2017 that the Company believes have strong diamond potential.

Figure 1: Kimberlite pipe targets with diamond indicator minerals (“DIMs”) in down-ice tills. Individual targets shown in insets.  Magnetic total field geophysics shown.  Results are from 208 of 1,111 samples received to date.

 

The Company processed kimberlite from the highly diamondiferous Kahuna, PST and Notch kimberlite dikes and also from the KEM dike, a barren body, to compare the indicator mineral signatures of diamondiferous versus barren kimberlites.  All three of the Kahuna, PST and Notch had certain indicator mineral chemistries in common that were absent in the barren body.  These diamond-associated mineral chemistries have now been recovered from till samples down-ice from new kimberlite pipe targets in several areas.

“The Kahuna project covers one of the largest, mostly under tested kimberlite pipe fields in Canada,” said Chris Taylor, CEO of Dunnedin. “While we remain positive on the potential of our diamond-bearing kimberlite dikes such as Kahuna, Notch and PST, the opportunity to additionally benefit our shareholders through a new discovery drives us to also test the pipes.  With these new results in hand, we aim to make 2017 a year of discovery, diamond valuation and resource growth.”

Summary of Results

  • Results received for 208 of 1,111 (19%) till samples collected in summer 2016, with results from the remaining 903 samples expected to be received through June.
  • To-date, up to seven potentially diamond-bearing kimberlite pipe targets have been identified with associated DIM dispersions in down-ice tills. Targets will be ranked for follow up exploration and drilling once all results are received.  The total number of targets, and their relative strengths based on DIM content, will be provided at that time.
  • Field crews will be mobilized during June to begin field investigations of these and other targets across the Kahuna project, with drilling expected to being this summer.
  • The Kahuna project is notable for yielding DIM chemistry associated with large diamonds recovered at producing diamond mines, including Ekati, which has been validated by recovery of large diamonds (up to 13.42 carats) at Kahuna.
  • Certain chemistries of the DIMs clinopyroxene, chromite, garnet and picroilmenite are observed consistently within the diamond-bearing kimberlite dikes, and are also found down-ice from the newly identified targets.
  • The geophysical signature of historically drilled kimberlite pipes generally consists of negative in-phase electromagnetic responses and variously high and low magnetic responses that are distinctive from background geology. The newly identified kimberlite pipe targets are consistent with these signatures, but require drilling to verify.

About Till Sampling for Diamond Exploration

Glacial till sampling is used extensively in the Canadian Arctic as a primary exploration tool leading to most major diamond discoveries, the most famous example of which is Ekati, which was discovered by Dunnedin’s advisor Dr. Charles Fipke.

Heavy mineral recovery from tills retrieves kimberlite indicator minerals (‘KIMs’) that were eroded from kimberlites by glaciers and deposited “down-ice”. This creates a train of positive till samples that can be tracked back to their original source

Some KIMs have chemical signatures that indicate source within the diamond stability field in the lower continental crust.  These are referred to as Diamond Indicator Minerals, or DIMs.  Certain DIM chemistries are known to be characteristic of the occurrence of larger diamonds, based on data sets collected from producing diamond mines.  The Kahuna project’s diamond-bearing kimberlites contain these DIMs, and have also yielded large diamonds.

Dunnedin’s till sampling program utilizes the same sampling and mineral ranking techniques as applied at Ekati, which can predict the potential of kimberlites to host diamonds with a high degree of confidence. The ranking employs proprietary mineral chemistry filters developed at CF Mineral Research Ltd. (“CFM”) of Kelowna, British Columbia, under the direction of Dr. Fipke.

 

About the Kahuna Project

Kahuna is an advanced stage high grade diamond project located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.  Dunnedin is now recovering diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples collected in from two seasons of field work.  An Inferred Resource released by Dunnedin showed over 4 million carats of macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) at a grade of 1.01 carats per tonne had been defined along the partial strike length of the Kahuna and Notch kimberlite dikes through shallow drilling.  The largest diamond recovered was a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was a piece of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats.  Recent results include a 0.82 tonne sample of the PST kimberlite dike which returned 96 macrodiamonds totalling 5.34 carats (+0.85 mm) and a 2.36 tonne sample of the Notch kimberlite which returned 89 macrodiamonds totalling 2.38 carats (+0.85 mm).

The Kahuna project is located adjacent to the development-stage Meliadine gold project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. Meliadine has approximately 14.5 million tonnes of Proven and Probable Reserves grading 7.32 g/t gold, containing 3.4 million ounces of gold as of December 31, 2015.   There is an additional Indicated Resource of 20.7 million tonnes grading 4.95 g/t gold containing 3.3 million ounces of gold, and an additional Inferred Resource of 14.7 million tonnes grading 7.51 g/t gold containing 3.5 million ounces of gold (source: www.agnicoeagle.com).

Dunnedin Doubles Area of Kahuna Project

December 7, 2016 – Vancouver, BC, Canada. – Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Dunnedin”) (TSX-V: DVI) today announced it has increased the size of the Kahuna diamond project by staking an additional 59 claims totaling 66,047 hectares.  The project is now approximately 120,000 hectares (1,200 square kilometres) in size.  The Kahuna project now consists of:

  • Over 100 interpreted kimberlite pipe targets, 50 of which are currently being screened for down-ice diamond indicator mineral (“DIM”) chemistry from till sampling;
  • Over 200 kilometres of aggregate strike length of a kimberlite-intruded structural network including 10 drill-proven diamond bearing kimberlite dikes with sample grades ranging from 0.66 to 6.5 carats (+0.85 mm) per tonne, and;
  • Five confirmed gold-bearing metasediment belts with approximately 190 kilometres of aggregate strike length, including drill-confirmed gold in an extension of the Aqpik and Aklak host stratigraphy held by Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSE: AEM, “Agnico”) on the Meliadine property.

The Company notes an increasing level of exploration and development activity in the Kahuna and Meliadine project area, with Agnico recently entering into mineral exploration agreements extending their land position into areas of Inuit-owned subsurface rights adjacent to Dunnedin’s claims.  Most recently, NxGold Ltd. (TSX-V: NXN, “NxGold”) announced a $35+ million earn-in deal for a 70% interest in a 8,473 hectare (85 square kilometre) land package adjacent to the Meliadine claims.  An updated claims map is provided below in Figure 1.

As previously announced (see Dunnedin news release of November 23, 2016), Dunnedin intends to undertake a plan of arrangement to spin out its gold and copper assets, consisting of the gold rights at the Kahuna project in Nunavut and its Trapper copper-gold porphyry property in British Columbia.  Further information including a date of record will be provided when details are available.

About the Kahuna Project

Kahuna is an advanced stage high grade diamond project located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, where Dunnedin is earning a 100% interest.  Dunnedin is recovering diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples collected in summer 2015, and has completed a 1,100 till sample program in summer 2016.  The Company anticipates beginning a drilling and bulk sampling program in 2017 that will test potential extensions to recently published Inferred Resources, assemble a valuation parcel of approximately 1,000 carats of commercial-sized diamonds, and test a number of newly defined high priority kimberlite targets that have yielded populations of diamond indicator minerals.

Figure 1: Kahuna project land position December 2016 showing gold zones on adjacent claims and drill-confirmed diamond bearing kimberlites at Kahuna.

An Inferred Resource released by Dunnedin (see Dunnedin news release of January 26, 2015) identified over 4 million carats of macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) at a grade of 1.01 carats per tonne along the partial strike length of the Kahuna and Notch kimberlites through shallow drilling.  The largest diamond recovered was a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was part of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats.

Recent results include a 0.82 tonne sample of the PST kimberlite dike which returned 96 macrodiamonds totalling 5.34 carats (+0.85 mm) and a 2.32 tonne sample of the Notch kimberlite which returned 85 macrodiamonds totalling 1.95 carats (+0.85 mm).

The Kahuna project is located adjacent to the development-stage Meliadine gold project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and has also yielded gold results, including visible gold in drill core, gold mineralization in the strike extension of the Meliadine host stratigraphy, and new gold-in-till targets proximal to diamond-bearing kimberlites. Agnico’s Meliadine project has approximately 14.5 million tonnes of Proven and Probable Reserves grading 7.32 g/t gold, containing 3.4 million ounces of gold as of December 31, 2015.   There is an additional Indicated Resource of 20.7 million tonnes grading 4.95 g/t gold containing 3.3 million ounces of gold, and an additional Inferred Resource of 14.7 million tonnes grading 7.51 g/t gold containing 3.5 million ounces of gold (source: www.agnicoeagle.com).

On December 6, 2016, the Company granted 150,000 Options to a Consultant of the Company.  The Options are exercisable at a price of $0.195 per share for a period of two years from the date of grant. The Options were granted pursuant to the Company’s shareholder-approved stock option plan and are subject to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and any applicable regulatory hold periods.

  • The acceleration of the expiry of 6,078,000 common share purchase warrants and 249,076 finders’ warrants issued on February 9, 2016, and exercisable at price of $0.10 per common share. The expiry date is accelerated to Friday, December 23, 2016.  Assuming all of the warrants are exercised, the Company will receive gross proceeds of approximately $632,708.

Additional details of the proposed transactions are provided below.

“Dunnedin management is confident that the diamond assets at Kahuna will create significant value for shareholders,” said Chris Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Dunnedin, “However, there is additional  untapped value in gold and copper within the Company that we can unlock with a spin out.

“The recent identification of widespread gold mineralization at Kahuna, contiguous with Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.’s (TSE: AEM) Meliadine project, plus excellent gold-copper porphyry results at our 100% owned Trapper project, warrant an additional focus on these metals.  We believe that separate corporate vehicles for diamond and metal assets will yield the best long-term value to shareholders.”

Intention to Undertake a Plan of Arrangement

The Company intends to spin out its 100% owned Trapper gold-copper property located in the Sutlahine area of Northern British Columbia, along with rights to gold mineralization at its Kahuna diamond project, located in Nunavut, into a wholly-owned subsidiary (“SpinCo”), pursuant to a plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement”), under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).  The Arrangement will also include an agreed upon working capital amount to facilitate exploration activities at these projects.

The Arrangement will be subject to TSX Venture Exchange, regulatory and court approval, the approval of the Company’s shareholders at an annual general and special meeting to be held in early 2017, as well as at management’s continued discretion.  Pursuant to the arrangement, all of the common shares of SpinCo will be distributed to shareholders of the Company on a pro rata basis.  The Company intends to apply for a listing of the shares of SpinCo on the TSX Venture Exchange.  Any such listing will be subject to SpinCo fulfilling all of the requirements of the TSX Venture Exchange.  There will be no change in shareholders’ holdings in Dunnedin as a result of the Arrangement.  Additional details regarding the Arrangement, as a well as the proposed record date, will be provided as they become available.

Acceleration of Warrant Expiry

The Company also hereby gives notice that it has triggered the accelerated expiry of 6,078,000 common share purchase warrants and 249,076 finders’ warrants issued in connection with a private placement closed on February 9, 2016.  Each warrant and finders warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.10 per common share for a period of two years.  Pursuant to the warrant terms, the expiry date is now accelerated to Friday, December 23, 2016.  Any remaining unexercised warrants will be cancelled after the accelerated expiry date.  Assuming that all the warrants are exercised, the Company will receive proceeds of approximately $632,708 and will issue 6,327,076 common shares.

About Dunnedin Ventures

Dunnedin Ventures’ primary asset is the Kahuna project, an advanced stage high grade diamond property located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, where Dunnedin is earning a 100% interest.  Dunnedin is recovering diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples collected in summer 2015, and has completed a 1100 till sample program in summer 2016.  The Company anticipates beginning a drilling and bulk sampling program in 2017 that will test potential extensions to recently published Inferred Resources, assemble a valuation parcel of approximately 1000 carats of commercial-sized diamonds, and test a number of newly defined high priority kimberlite targets that have yielded attractive populations of diamond indicator minerals.

An Inferred Resource released by Dunnedin (see Dunnedin news release of January 26, 2015) showed over 4 million carats of macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) at a grade of 1.01 carats per tonne had been defined along the partial strike length of the Kahuna and Notch kimberlites through shallow drilling.  The largest diamond recovered was a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was a piece of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats.

Recent results include a 0.82 tonne sample of the PST kimberlite dike which returned 96 macrodiamonds totalling 5.34 carats (+0.85 mm) and a 2.32 tonne sample of the Notch kimberlite which returned 85 macrodiamonds totalling 1.95 carats (+0.85 mm).  The Kahuna project is located adjacent to the development-stage Meliadine gold project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and has also yielded gold results, including visible gold in drill core, gold mineralization in the strike extension of the Meliadine host stratigraphy, and new gold-in-till targets proximal to diamond-bearing kimberlites.

Dunnedin’s second asset is its 100% owned Trapper project located in the Sutlahine area of northern British Columbia.  The property consists of a 40 square kilometre land package adjacent to Brixton Metals Corp.’s (TSX-V: BBB) Thorn property and overlying a copper-gold porphyry system.  A 42 hole reconnaissance drill program completed in 2011 intersected a gold-rich polymetallic semi massive sulphide stockwork across 2.2 kilometres of strike that remains open to extension, surrounding an interpreted copper porphyry centre of over 6 kilometres in diameter.  Drill results included visible gold flanking copper porphyry in drill core returning 34.11 m of 1.71 g/t gold.  Undrilled surface copper porphyry zones have also been mapped and sampled, returning up to 0.57% copper in bedrock and 2.5% copper in float.

Gold and Diamonds At The Kahuna Project

 

October 17, 2016 – Vancouver, BC, Canada. – Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Dunnedin”) (TSX-V: DVI) today reports gold-in-till results from its 2015 diamond exploration program, and provides a compilation of historical gold exploration results at the Kahuna project, Nunavut.

 

“While Dunnedin will remain focused on advancing our compelling diamond assets at Kahuna, we have also identified widespread gold mineralization,” said Chris Taylor, Dunnedin’s CEO, “This is not surprising given the proximity to the Meliadine project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and the geology shared by both properties.  The identification of gold proximal to our diamond resources and adjacent to one of Canada’s best new development stage gold mines could yield unique synergies between diamond and gold exploration at Kahuna.”

 

Highlights of results include:

 

  • Gold results in tills, bedrock and historical drill core define multiple targets across the property.

 

  • Gold was found through neutron activation analysis of heavy mineral concentrates in 84 of 129 (65%) till samples collected by Dunnedin in 2015.

 

  • Mineral concentrates that returned gold values were confirmed to contain coarse gold grains. Grains were evaluated for transport characteristics, and have fragile textures suggesting local bedrock sources.

 

  • Metasediment belts including that hosting gold at Meliadine have been repeated through regional folding and on-strike extensions at Kahuna, where they also host gold.

 

  • 97 mineralized historical grab samples returning between 0.05 g/t and 2.52 g/t gold were collected across four metasediment and structural zones.

 

  • Historical drilling targeting kimberlite encountered visible gold returning 7.24 g/t gold over 0.68 m along the strike extension of Agnico’s Aklak and Aquik Gold Zones of the adjacent Meliadine property; host rock was mineralized banded iron formation of similar type to that observed at Meliadine.

 

  • One area of strong gold-in-till concentration occurs at the 10 km2 hinge domain of a previously un-tested folded metasediment belt where a number of diamond-bearing kimberlites including PST, Notch and 07KD-24 are also located, suggesting proximal bedrock sources of gold and diamonds.

 

Figure 1: Gold-in-till results showing diamond-bearing kimberlite bulk sample locations and the locations of gold mineralized zones at Meliadine.

Figure 1: Gold-in-till results showing diamond-bearing kimberlite bulk sample locations and the locations of gold mineralized zones at Meliadine.

Gold-in-till results are provided in Figure 1.  Dunnedin submitted heavy mineral concentrates from its 2015 till survey to Activation Laboratories Ltd. (“ActLabs”) of Ancaster, Ontario, for neutron activation testing, an assay technique that preserves the mineral samples.  129 samples were sent for analysis, of which 84 (65%) returned  greater than 50 ppb gold and are considered anomalous, and 12 samples (9%) returned greater than 1000 ppb gold with a high of 5930 ppb gold.   Table 1 includes a description of coarse gold grains identified to date from these samples.  Gold grain recovery is ongoing, and additional grains are expected to be recovered once mineral concentrates are returned from ActLabs and can also be screened.

 

The identification of gold at the hinge of a folded metasediment belt suggests structurally-controlled gold mineralization similar in style to many Archean sediment/greenstone hosted gold deposits such as Meliadine (NU), Lupin (NU), and Musslewhite (ON) may also be present at Kahuna.  This hinge domain also hosts several known diamond-bearing kimberlites including those from which diamond recoveries have recently been reported (see Dunnedin news releases of November 12, 2015 and September 6, 2016).  Of note, diamond indicator mineral results from these same till samples also point to potential extensions to known kimberlites, and additional kimberlite pipe and dike targets that are prospective for diamonds (see Dunnedin news release of July 25, 2016).

 

Table 1:  Description of gold grains recovered to date with neutron activation sample grade provided

Sample Au (ppb) # Gold Grains Description
1751334 950 1 Overall the grain exhibits some fragile features, is ranked between modified and reshaped
1751344 1680 2 Features suggest derivation from a primary source, overall the grain is not proximal, but not greatly reshaped.
1751319 1280 1 Solid surface texture with euhedral inclusion that appears to be a primary mineral intergrown with the gold. Texture and shape suggest modified to pristine, a proximal gold grain.
1751344 1680 2 Somewhat spongy texture but with blocky features , suggesting a pristine to modified ranking.

 

The folded metasediment belt associated with this gold has a geophysically interpreted strike length of 16 kilometres.  The interpreted source area covers approximately 4.3 kilometres of strike, corresponding to the folded hinge of the belt, while the remaining 11.7 kilometres of the prospective formation was staked by Dunnedin earlier in 2016.  First pass wide spaced till sampling has already been completed on the strike extension of this belt during Dunnedin’s recent 1,111 sample 2016 till program.

 

Historic Gold Results (2005 – 2009)

 

Historic results retrieved from publicly available data include gold analysis for 338 till samples, 97 rock samples and re-sampling of 10 drill holes.  Drill holes were originally completed to explore kimberlite targets.  Gold encountered in this drilling was incidental, and assays for gold were collected sporadically.  Nonetheless, gold was reported in six drill holes as shown in Table 2.

*width of the sample represents core length and not true width.  Historical drill hole results were obtained from various SEDAR filings of news releases and reports by past explorers including the Hunter Exploration Group. 

97 rock samples collected across the property returned between 0.05 and 2.52 g/t gold.  Gold is associated with magnetically responsive formations that have been mapped as metasediment belts and regionally significant, deep seated shear zones.  Historic tills yielded anomalous gold values down-ice from gold-in-bedrock mineralization as confirmed through later sampling and drilling.  The aggregate strike length of these gold-hosting formations is approximately 80 kilometres on the Kahuna claims.

 

Other Updates

 

The Company also reports that in recent discussions with local government in both Rankin Inlet and Chesterfield Inlet, plans were provided to Dunnedin for an all season access trail that is currently under construction by local authorities from Chesterfield Inlet to within a few kilometres of the Kahuna kimberlite, where Dunnedin has published an Inferred diamond Resource (see Dunnedin news release of January 26, 2015).  Approximately 35 kilometres of trail have been completed to date, with full completion expected by approximately 2020.  Dunnedin has pledged $25,000 to the Chesterfield Inlet town council towards transport of a bridge span from Rankin Inlet to Chesterfield Inlet during winter 2016 which will complete a crossing on the trail.

 

Long-term plans were also provided to the Company of a proposed route connecting the current all-season Meliadine mine access road to the trail under construction from Chesterfield Inlet.  The proposed route would connect the two communities, and would pass within a few kilometres of most known kimberlite occurrences at the Kahuna project.

 

The Company also wishes to announce the addition of Mr. Sorin Posescu, P.Geo, to its board of directors.  Mr. Posescu, an exploration geologist with over 20 years of experience across North America and Europe, is one of the underlying vendors of the Kahuna project.  Mr. Posescu is an expert in geological modeling and precious metals exploration, with a strong background in strategic corporate development and property assessment.  Mr. Posescu is also Vice President, Exploration of Brixton Metals Corp. (TSX-V: BBB).

 

Note on Meliadine

 

Agnico’s Meliadine project has approximately 14.5 million tonnes of Proven and Probable Reserves grading 7.32 g/t gold, containing 3.4 million ounces of gold as of December 31, 2015.   There is an additional Indicated Resource of 20.7 million tonnes grading 4.95 g/t gold containing 3.3 million ounces of gold, and an additional Inferred Resource of 14.7 million tonnes grading 7.51 g/t gold containing 3.5 million ounces of gold (source: www.agnicoeagle.com).

About the Kahuna Project

 

Kahuna is an advanced stage high grade diamond project located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, where Dunnedin is earning a 100% interest.  Dunnedin is recovering diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples collected in summer 2015, and has completed a 1100 till sample program in summer 2016.  An Inferred Resource released by Dunnedin showed over 4 million carats of macrodiamonds (+0.85 mm) at a grade of 1.01 carats per tonne had been defined along the partial strike length of the Kahuna and Notch kimberlite dikes through shallow drilling.  The largest diamond recovered was a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was a piece of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats.  Recent results include a 0.82 tonne sample of the PST kimberlite dike which returned 96 macrodiamonds totalling 5.34 carats (+0.85 mm) and a 2.32 tonne sample of the Notch kimberlite which returned 85 macrodiamonds totalling 1.95 carats (+0.85 mm).  The Kahuna project is located adjacent to the development-stage Meliadine gold project of Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. and has also yielded gold results, including visible gold in drill core, gold mineralization in the strike extension of the Meliadine host stratigraphy, and new gold-in-till targets proximal to diamond-bearing kimberlites.

 

Note on Gold-in-Till Results

 

Till sampling completed at Meliadine by the Geological Survey of Canada studied gold-in-till results across the Meliadine Trend.  Results from the GSC’s neutron activation assays of heavy mineral concentrates from Meliadine are provided in Figure 1.  Pristine to dominantly re-shaped gold grains occur proximal to the known gold zones, and the up-ice termination of gold-in-till trains and bedrock gold sources are highly correlated.  The report concludes “Basal Till over much of the Meliadine Trend is an appropriate sampling medium for gold prospecting.  Till is abundant and locally derived and its provenance reflects a clear southeasterly direction of glacial transport”.  As the Kahuna project is immediately adjacent to Meliadine, use of till sampling to track gold-in-bedrock sources is expected to be similarly effective.

 

The heavy mineral recovery circuit employed by Dunnedin was designed for diamond indicator mineral recoveries and only recovers coarse gold with a diameter exceeding 0.425 mm.  Most gold-in-till exploration programs also recover much smaller gold grains (down to 0.001 mm; 425 times smaller than the smallest grains recovered by Dunnedin).  For example, reports by the GSC at Meliadine determined 92% of recovered gold grains were less than 0.006 mm in diameter, and would not have been recovered by Dunnedin.  As such, Dunnedin’s grain counts from the 2015 till sampling program are expected to be proportionately lower, however the coarser gold that is recovered is anticipated to be more reflective of proximal bedrock source and provides a valuable exploration tool.

Dunnedin Concludes 2016 Field Program at Kahuna Diamond Project

October 4, 2016 – Vancouver, BC, Canada. – Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Dunnedin”) (TSX-V: DVI) today announced the conclusion of its summer 2016 field investigation program at its Kahuna project, located near Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.

 

“Our 2016 field program collected 1,111 till samples across the Kahuna property, approximately ten times the number of samples collected during Dunnedin’s 2015 program,” said Chris Taylor, Dunnedin’s CEO. “Last year’s program effectively identified several new potentially diamond-bearing kimberlite pipe and dike targets.  The much larger 2016 program was implemented to expand upon existing diamond indicator mineral trains, and to identify additional prospective diamond sources through testing the down-ice mineral signatures of geophysically interpreted kimberlite pipes and dikes across the property.”

Dunnedin’s 2016 program will employ till sampling and mineral ranking techniques pioneered by its advisor Dr. Charles Fipke and originally applied at Ekati, which can predict the potential of kimberlites to host diamonds with a high degree of confidence.  The ranking employs proprietary mineral chemistry filters developed at CF Mineral Research Ltd. (“CFM”) under the direction of Dr. Fipke.  Information on the sampling and ranking protocols are provided on Dunnedin’s web site at www.dunnedinventures.com.

 

The Company is currently completing diamond recoveries from the PST and Kahuna kimberlites sampled in 2015, along with processing of the 2015 till samples for potential gold content.  Results will be issued as received.  It is anticipated that processing of the 2016 till samples will be completed in time to guide the upcoming winter program in 2016 – 2017.

 

The Company also announces that due to the strength of its 2015 results it has staked an additional 21 claims totaling approximately 25,000 hectares to control additional prospective geology at the Kahuna project.  The Kahuna project now comprises approximately 60,000 hectares.  Dunnedin’s claims now come to within approximately 10 kilometres of the Meliadine mine development site, which is currently under construction by Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.

 

Investor Relations

 

The Company also wishes to announce it has entered into a consulting agreement with Knox Communications Inc. (“KCI”) dated October 1, 2016.  Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, KCI has agreed to provide investor relations services to the Company for consideration of $3,000 per month and the grant of stock options to purchase up to 150,000 common shares of the Company at an exercise price of $0.19 per share, subject to vesting according to the Company’s stock option plan.

 

Headed by Knox Henderson, KCI will assist the Company in strategic marketing and communications.  Mr. Henderson brings more than 15 years’ experience in investor relations and corporate communications for publicly listed companies.  He has provided marketing services for financings exceeding $100 million in aggregate value for Toronto Venture Exchange listed resource companies, from early exploration through to prefeasibility stage.  The agreement and the grant of stock options are subject to Exchange approval.

 

About the Kahuna Project
