Diamonds North Resources And Arctic Star Plan C$1,500,000 Exploration Program At Siku Project

а Vancouver, May 16, 2007--Diamonds North Resources (DDN: TSX.V) and Arctic Star Diamond Corp. (ADD: TSX.V) announce a C$1,500,000 million exploration budget for the Siku Property located in the Franklin diamondiferous kimberlite district of Nunavut. The Siku property surrounds the Darby property on three sides where five kimberlites were discovered during the 2006 field season. Based on the presence of indicator minerals and geophysical targets, the companies believe the Franklin diamondiferous kimberlite field extends onto the Siku property.

The C$1,500,000 exploration program for Siku in 2007 will include:
  • Airborne geophysics
  • Ground geophysics over selected targets
  • Drill testing 12 high priority targets
The objective of the 2007 exploration program is to increase shareholder value by demonstrating that the Siku property is part of the diamondiferous Franklin kimberlite field with the discovery of diamondiferous kimberlites.

"The Siku property has the potential to add significant value for both company's shareholders in a short period of time, the property surrounds a known diamondiferous kimberlite field, we have targets developed and plans to drill this year" says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Diamonds North.

Arctic Star Diamond Corp can earn into a 50% interest in certain mineral claims totaling approximately 455,000 acres by issuing Diamonds North Resources 1.5 million shares of Arctic Star and incurring $2.5 million on expenditures over three years. (See News Release--NR06-32, Oct.2006). Diamonds North Resources is the operator of the Siku project.

Bruce Kienlen (P.Geol) and Graham Gill (P. Geo) are Diamonds North's qualified persons reviewing these projects. They are responsible for the design and conduct of the exploration programs and the verification and quality assurance of analytical results.
