Drilling On Victoria Island Starts With Wellington Project

а #03-22

Vancouver, BC -- Diamonds North Resources Ltd. (DDN -- TSX Venture) and Majescor Resources Inc. (MAJ -- TSX Venture) announce that the exploration drill program has commenced on the Wellington Project, Victoria Island, Nunavut. The targets chosen are on trend and have similar geophysical signatures to the diamondiferous kimberlite found on Diamonds North's Blue Ice Project's Galaxy Structure. The Galaxy Structure is a 20 kilometre trend of semi continuous kimberlite that to date has 9 separate kimberlite bodies 4 of which have anomalously high diamond counts.

The program will consist of a 500 metre drill program to test 4 to 5 targets that have been verified using ground geophysics. The airborne geophysical surveys flown in 2002 identified six pipe-like and six dyke-like anomalies which have magnetic signatures similar to known kimberlites on Victoria Island. The Wellington Project is located on the eastern border of Diamond North's Blue Ice Project. Majescor can earn a 50% interest in the Wellington Project by spending $2.25 million over three years and has approved a budget of at least $450,000 for the 2003 exploration program.

Any kimberlite core recovered will be split and submitted for diamond analysis. In addition, a heavy mineral till sampling program is planned to follow up on a number of kimberlitic pyrope, ilmenite and chromite grains located by a previous reconnaissance survey on the property.
