Diamonds North Resources Ltd.: Diamond Count Increases at Vega
11/3/03

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Nov 3, 2003 (CCNMatthews via COMTEX) --
Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (DDN-TSX Venture) announces diamond results from the Vega kimberlite. A total of 78 diamonds were recovered from 44.6 kilograms of sample V1 which consists of three contiguous drill core samples, as compared to 22 stones in 22 kilograms in a 2002 sample. Nine diamonds (12%) are classified as macrodiamonds with at least one dimension greater than 0.5mm. One stone is greater than 1.0mm in at least one dimension.

An additional 18 diamonds were recovered from a 24 kilogram sample which was combined from two samples to form composite sample V2. Four of the 18 stones recovered (22%) are macrodiamonds with at least one dimension measuring more than 0.5mm.

The Vega kimberlite is located 1.8 kilometres northwest of the Snow Bunting kimberlite (see news release #03-37, Oct.15, 2003) along the southeast portion of the Galaxy Kimberlite Structure. These results are from the 2003 exploration program on the Blue Ice Project which was jointly funded by Diamonds North and Teck Cominco Ltd.

Full Square Mesh Sieve diamond results for composite samples V1 and V2 are presented below. These results demonstrate the presence of larger stones and a favorable diamond size distribution at Vega from modest sized samples. The diamond distribution indicates that the Vega portion of the Galaxy Kimberlite Structure has economic diamond potential which can be demonstrated by the collection of a much larger sample.

The 2003 results from Vega show consistent high diamond counts and very high macro/micro ratios along the Galaxy Structure and reveal that the collection of a larger sample has resulted in an increased stone count when compared with the 2002 diamond results for Vega in which 22(i) diamonds were returned from a 22 kilogram sample in drill hole BI-02-01. (i)(Original reporting stated 20 stones in 22 kilograms; subsequent re-picking of the sample resulted in the recovery of 2 additional stones.)

The Vega kimberlite is represented by a one kilometre long, 50-125 metre wide linear magnetic low which connects with Sandpiper kimberlite on its eastern end and forms part of the 2.7 kilometre long diamondiferous southeast portion of the Galaxy Kimberlite Structure.

Drill hole BI-03-08 was drilled to a depth of 140.21 metres at -70, oblique at 30 to the azimuth of the kimberlite structure to obtain a larger volume of sample. Dyke V1, which measures 3.18 metres (true thickness) was intersected 11 metres north of Dyke V2 (1.65 metres true width). Both dykes are described as olivine macrocrystic hypabyssal kimberlite dykes containing mantle derived indicator minerals. A 5.29 metre (true width) kimberlite breccia in contact with the southern margin of Dyke V1 was also encountered. This unit was not sampled due to high dilution of country rock and the irregular, random orientation of the kimberlite intervals throughout the section.

Eight other kimberlite dykes (six located up section of V1/V2 and 2 situated between the two main dykes) ranging in true widths from 0.01 to 0.45 metres were also cored in drill hole BI-03-08. Composite and individual samples were collected from these dykes for comparative purposes. One sample (1.96 kilograms) taken from an individual dyke returned one diamond that remained on the +0.212 mesh while another stone, recovered from a 13.38 kilogram sample, remained on the +0.100 mesh.

The color and clarity of the diamonds recovered from the 2003 Vega samples are summarized below for samples V1 and V2.

Kimberlite samples were split and logged in secure facilities at the field camp by qualified geoscientists. Samples were securely sealed in solid containers and shipped by air to SGS Lakefield in Ontario. SGS Lakefield's standard caustic fusion diamond recovery method was utilized for all samples. SGS Lakefield is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada to the ISO 17025 standard for specific registered tests.

Diamonds North Resources Ltd. is a diamond exploration company with ten projects covering two million acres of land in Canada's Nunavut and Northwest Territories. Eight projects are located on Victoria Island and two projects are adjacent to the De Beers/Mountain Province Kennady Lake advanced stage discovery.

Microdaytrader:
The better buy would be Kensington Resources @.90. Half of shore golds star kimberlite is on the kensington property. I got out of shore when it reached 1.78 and bought more great western minerals and tahera for under .30 canadian. I expect shore to retrace and if it does go down to 1.23 I will get back in. Kensington and Shore will mine all year round where diamonds north will get snowed out.
