Star revealed details this morning of a planned bulk sampling program on its Star kimberlite in central Saskatchewan. Star Diamond and its partner, Rio Tinto PLC, will extract kimberlite from 10 sites on the mammoth mushroom-shaped kimberlite. The sites have already been selected and the two companies completed a series of pilot holes last fall, producing an average of 120 metres of kimberlite from each hole.
