To date, six diamondiferous kimberlites have been discovered on the property, including the AV-1
kimberlite which has produced an initial sample grade of 0.
Aviat is being explored under a joint venture between Stornoway (70%), BHP Billiton plc (20%) and Hunter Exploration Group (10%), and hosts the diamondiferous AV-1
and AV-2 kimberlites, discovered from prospecting during 2002 and 2003, respectively.
A total of 2,024 m of delineation drilling was completed at AV-1 between late April and late June, 2004.
Three additional lake-based geophysical targets, selected on the basis of proximity to AV-1, were also tested as part of the spring drilling program.
A strong concentration of anomalous samples have been identified in association with the 70km long, 3-km wide, east-west trending Tremblay Corridor, which hosts AV-1 and AV-2, the first kimberlites discovered in the region.
5 m exposure of hypabyssal kimberlite at AV-1 was stripped of overburden, washed and subdivided into a series of measured 1m2 panels.
The sample grade reported above is not considered to be representative of the entire AV-1 kimberlite body.
