The exploration upside for the Renard kimberlite pipes has been determined by projecting reasonable kimberlitevolumes from the base of the Inferred Resource to a depth of 700m below surface.

This “Alternative” diamond price model is highly accretive to the project’svaluation given the dominance of Renard 2 in the mine plan. The interpretation of similarity in the diamondpopulations is the more conservative approach.
