Welcome to Karelian Diamond Resources
Karelian Diamonds Resources (“Karelian Diamonds”) has an established diamond exploration and development programme in Finland, together with an active exploration programme for nickel, copper and platinum group metals in Northern Ireland.
- The Company’s rationale for its diamond exploration programme is to discover a world class diamond deposit in Finland comparable to the two world class diamond deposits (Lomonosov and Grib) in similar geology across the border from Finland.
- A green diamond has been discovered, in the Kuhmo area of Finland, and a series of potentially diamondiferous kimberlite targets identified. A follow-up excavation and drilling programme is in progress.
- A mining permit to proceed with development of the Lahtojoki diamond deposit, which has a significant percentage of pink diamonds, is being processed and would be the first diamond mine in Europe.
- An exciting new development for the Company is an exploration programme for nickel, copper and platinum group metals following positive results from a stream sampling programme in Northern Ireland.
