"Diamond Discoveries International's exploration program in the Torngat region of northern Quebec, Canada is emerging as a new kimberlite field with enormous diamond potential. In a very short time, Diamond Discoveries has located several new diamond bearing dykes and has discovered over 50 potentially diamond bearing kimberlite* dykes.

*kimberlite: Kimberlite is a mica peridotite and a source of rich deposits of diamonds. The deposits occurring at Kimberley, South Africa were the first recognized and the source of the name. The Kimberly diamonds were originally found in decomposed kimberlite which was colored yellow by limonite, and so was called "yellow ground." Deeper workings encountered less altered rock, undecomposed kimberlite, which miners call "blue ground."
