Mexivada Diamond And Gold Concessions Approved And Signed By
President Denis Sassou N'Guesso Of The Republic Of Congo; Diamond
Exploration Program Begins
Mexivada is pleased to report that its Malambani-Diamond,
Malambani-Gold, and Bitsandou-Diamond Permis des Recherches for
diamonds and gold / connected substances in the Republic of Congo
(Brazzaville) ("ROC Congo") were approved and signed on April 3rd by
Hon. Denis SASSOU N'GUESSO, the President and Head of State of the ROC
Congo. Mines Ministre Pierre OBA also signed these final decrees,
granting exclusive tenure and title to the concessions to Compagnie
Mini�re du Chaillu, Mexivada's wholly-owned Congo subsidiary. Mexivada
recently also applied for Permis des Recherches for Diamonds and Gold
at Vouka, located south of the Malambani concessions, in an area where
Mexivada has made a new discovery of alluvial diamonds. Mexivada also
holds prospecting permits that cover the prospective ground in Congo's
Mexivada has begun its 2008 program of exploration for white and
coloured diamonds in the ROC Congo. This exploration is being directed
by Siva Sankar, a project geologist formerly with de Beers who has
worked extensively in diamond exploration in Africa. The areas
targeted include Malambani, Lepandja, Madoka, Bikelele, Carrefour, and
Vouka, where kimberlite indicator minerals and diamonds up to 22
millimetres in diameter have been recovered locally. Mexivada is
investigating an area at Madoka, where 3 larger diamonds were recovered
and a metamorphosed kimberlite dike may have been found by the company,
similar to dikes found in Gabon at Mitzic. A G-10 kimberlitic garnet
was found in a low, swampy, garnet-rich area at Lepandja. Mexivada
feels that the Chaillu area in the ROC Congo holds excellent potential
for the discovery of kimberlitic bodies that contain large diamonds,
including an abnormally high percentage of fancy coloured gem quality
