Peregrine, NexGen and Cardinal among leaders honoured in PDAC awards
Published: 14 Nov 18
The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) has announced the winners of its yearly awards, which recognise the work of international and domestic leaders in the mineral exploration and mining community. The Bill Dennis award went to Peregrine Diamonds, which discovered the Chidliak diamond district, near Iqaluit on Baffin Island. Exploration programmes and engineering studies completed between 2008 and 2018 led to the discovery of 74 kimberlites, one of which has a 17.96-million-carat inferred mineral resource with an average grade of 2.41 ct/t and average diamond value of $151/ct, with six other kimberlites having economic potential. A 2018 preliminary economic assessment outlined an openpit mine with a 13-year mine life and post-tax net present value (NPV) of C$668.7-million and an internal rate of return (IRR) of 31.2%. De Beers bought Peregrine last year and Chidliak is expected to become Canada’s next diamond mine.
