New diamond project announced in Nunavut, adding to Canada’s total mine count


Arctic Star Exploration Corp. announced the full acquisition of the Stein Diamond Property in Nunavut, Canada. Located 85km northwest of Taloyoak, Nunavut, the Stein property is made up of four contiguous prospecting permits covering an area of 105,637 hectares on the Boothia Peninsula.

An advanced diamond exploration project, the Stein property was acquired as part of Arctic Star’s on-going strategic analysis of exploration data in the public domain. The exploration is set to start in the spring and summer of this year. The Stein property was one of the prospective diamond exploration programs that was halted during the time of the global financial crisis in 2008. CJ
