Diamcor Recovers Additional “Special” Diamonds at Krone-Endora at Venetia

July 11, 2013

TSX.V Symbol (DMI)

KELOWNA, BC, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI), (the “Company”) an emerging producer of rough diamonds, has recovered
two additional “special” diamonds in the +10.8 carat category from its
Krone-Endora at Venetia Project (the “Project”).  The recovery of the
two diamonds, a 15.16 carat and a 13.38 carat, occurred during initial
tests performed on the processing of previously stockpiled material in
the +12.0mm to -28.0mm size fraction through the expanded quarrying and
in-field screening operations at the Project.

“The recovery of additional diamonds of this size confirm the ability of
the Project to produce large diamonds, and the potential positive
impact the processing of larger size fractions can provide going
forward”,
commented Mr. Dean Taylor, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Diamcor. “We will continue our testing and commissioning efforts on both the
expanded quarrying and in-field screening operations, as well as the
main processing plant, with the goal being the efficient processing of
all size fractions in the long-term”
, Mr. Taylor added.

The Company also wishes to revise the information previously provided on
the finder’s fee compensation in its news release of June 17, 2013,
with respect to the closing of its non-brokered private placement (the

About Krone-Endora at Venetia

In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project
from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, consisting of the prospecting
rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, which represent a
combined surface area of approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent
to De Beers’ flagship Venetia Diamond Mine in South Africa. De Beers
previously completed various exploration efforts on initial areas of
interest comprised of approximately 307 hectares, a summary of which
was reported in an initial Independent NI 43-101 Technical Report filed
by the Company on July 30, 2009. The deposits which occur on the
properties of Krone and Endora have been identified as a rare,
higher-grade “Alluvial” basal deposit which is covered by a lower-grade
upper “Eluvial” deposit. The deposits are proposed to be the result of
the direct-shift (in respect to the “Eluvial” deposit) and erosion (in
respect to the “Alluvial” deposit) of an estimated combined 1,000 m (1
km) of material from the higher grounds of the adjacent Venetia
Kimberlite areas. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with
an average total depth of less than 15.0 metres from surface to
bedrock, allowing for a very low-cost mining operation to be employed
with the potential for near-term diamond production from a known
high-quality source.  Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant
development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its
location directly adjacent to the Venetia Mine.  Since acquiring
Krone-Endora the Company has completed the construction and
installation of extensive infrastructure at the Project, along with the
installation of a purpose built modular processing plant, and extensive
quarrying and in-field screening operations.  Commissioning of the
processing plant is now complete, and the Company’s current efforts are
designed to be a continuation of the ongoing advancement of the
Project, and as part of the Company’s final preparations in
anticipation of a planned move to 24/7 operations in the near future.
