To date, the company has recovered 13 diamonds overall from theproject, including the last three diamonds from the MTS grid.

Meanwhile, Pangolin also noted that the recovery of diamondsfrom the samples supports the presence of at least two diamond-bearing occurrences,while the distribution of the diamonds and garnets indicates at least three differentsources within the grid.
