North Arrow Commences 2014 Exploration At The Pikoo Diamond Project, Saskatchewan


May 28, 2014

North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) is pleased to announce the start of 2014 exploration at the Pikoo Diamond Project in central eastern Saskatchewan. A four week program is underway that will include of the collection of approximately 400 bulk till samples to help define kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) trains within the 33,000 ha property.

In 2013, exploration of the Pikoo Project was tremendously successful, with the discovery of a new diamondiferous kimberlite district in Canada. Initial exploration drilling on the property resulted in the discovery of kimberlite in 9 of 10 drill holes. A 209.7 kg sample from the PK150 kimberlite returned 23 diamonds larger than the 0.85 mm sieve class and having a total combined weight of 0.2815 carats (please see North Arrow news release dated November 5, 2013 for complete details of these diamond results). The 2013 program confirmed the Pikoo Project area is highly prospective for the discovery of diamond bearing kimberlites and that drilling success rates can be very high when testing targets with well-defined kimberlite indicator mineral (“KIM”) support.

The 2014 exploration program has therefore been designed to better define KIM anomalies and will come close to doubling the total number of till samples within the property. Sampling will evaluate selected potential kimberlite targets and will also provide more detailed regional coverage of the eastern portion of the property where numerous positive till samples are located but the current sample density is insufficient to define individual KIM trains. Till samples will be processed through July and August and results used to plan follow up exploration, potentially including drilling, in the fall 2014 and winter/spring 2015.

The 2014 Pikoo exploration program is being conducted with Stornoway Diamond Corporation (TSX-SWY) under an 80% (North Arrow) / 20% (Stornoway) participating joint venture arrangement. North Arrow’s diamond exploration programs are conducted under the direction of Kenneth Armstrong, P.Geo., President and CEO of North Arrow and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101.  Mr. Armstrong has reviewed the contents of this press release.
