TSX.V Symbol (DMI)

KELOWNA, BC, April 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that pursuant to the terms of the $2,000,000 convertible debenture ("Convertible Debenture"), originally issued to its strategic alliance partner, Tiffany & Co. Canada ("Tiffany"), a subsidiary of Tiffany & Co., in March 2011, the Company has exercised its right to convert the principal and accrued interest into Company common shares.  The Convertible Debenture was part of a $5,500,000 long term financing with Tiffany, as announced on March 29, 2011.  The Company has converted a total amount of $2, 295,920.25 inclusive of principal and accrued interest at the stipulated conversion rate of $0.75 per Company common share, resulting in a total issuance of 3,061,227 Company common shares to Tiffany.  The hold period applicable to the shares issued upon conversion of the Convertible Debenture expired four months and one day from the date of issuance of the Convertible Debenture.

Strategic Tiffany & Co. Alliance:

As announced on March 29, 2011, the Company has established a long-term strategic alliance and first right of refusal with Tiffany & Co. Canada, a subsidiary of world famous New York based Tiffany & Co., to purchase up to 100% of the future production of rough diamonds from the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project at then current prices to be determined by the parties on an ongoing basis.  In conjunction with this first right of refusal, Tiffany & Co. Canada also provided the Company with substantial financing to advance the Project as quickly as possible.  Tiffany & Co. is a publically traded company which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol TIF.  Originally founded in 1837, the Tiffany's name is now globally recognised as one of the premier luxury jewellery and specialty retailers in the world.  Through Tiffany & Co. and various other subsidiaries, the company is engaged in product design, manufacturing, and retailing activities on a global basis.  As of January 31, 2013 Tiffany & Co. operated 275 stores and boutiques in the Americas, Japan, Asia-Pacific, and Europe and engages in direct selling through internet, catalog and business gift operations.

About Krone-Endora at Venetia:

On February 28, 2011, Diamcor successfully 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 an 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.
