Diamante Minerals Inc (OTCBB:DIMN) recently dipped to a dime but has come back strong since forming a new baser over $0.15 a share.
DIMN was trading over $3 per share for most of last year after the name change from Oconn Industries Corp in April 2014 but dropped big in January hitting a low of $0.90.
Diamante Minerals Inc (OTCBB:DIMN) is a mining and exploration company focused on developing the Batovi Diamond Project, located to the north of Paranatinga in Mato Grosso, Brazil.
On November 24 of last year DIMN announced that it has executed an agreement to form a joint venture valued at approximately $12 million with mining and exploration company Mineracao Batovi Ltda.
The joint venture agreement contemplates the establishment of a new corporation to develop, finance and operate a diamond exploration project located to the north of Paranatinga in Mato Grosso, Brazil. As part of the agreement, the newly formed joint venture will receive approximately $1,000,000 in cash from Diamante, as well as mineral claims from Mineracao. Diamante will receive 20% of the new Brazilian corporation. Diamante is also responsible for the next $2,000,000 of expenses of the joint venture corporation. If Diamante incurs these exploration expenses prior to November 20, 2017, Diamante will be entitled to a 49% interest in the joint venture.
Charles Fipke is a founder of Canada’s first diamond mine, Ekati. Between 1998 and 2011, the mine had produced 50 million carats, according to Mining Global. An affiliate of Fipke will be issued shares holding a 5 percent ownership stake in Diamante as a result of the joint venture agreement. The area of the claims for the project is 109,687.6 hectares or 271,044 acres.

CEO Chad Ulansky said “Diamante’s joint venture with Mineracao fast tracks the discovery of a potentially significant economic resource in a region that has demonstrated high prospectivity for diamonds. We are excited to partner with a company that is led by legendary geologist Chuck Fipke and begin the first modern exploration of this highly compelling region.
Exploring the Rio Batovi basin has been of great interest to me for many years, and now we have the right partner to accelerate the process of finding diamond-bearing kimberlites,” said Fipke, who is a majority owner of Mineracao. “I am confident that we will make excellent progress during the next several months, as we launch an airborne survey of the claims area.”
On February 3 DIMN annouinced a gold stream agreement for the Molejon Gold Mine, located in the Donoso District, Colon Province of Panama. Diamante has negotiated a royalty of 12.5% on 1,000 ounces of gold produced per month for 12 months. In the event monthly production exceeds 1,000 ounces Diamante is to receive an additional 5% royalty. Diamante will receive the royalty upon completion of bridge funding to Blendcore LLC who acts as the master contractor for the mine owned by Petaquilla Gold, S.A. These funds will be used to re-start one processing line at the mine to allow the treatment of stockpiled minerals.
Under the terms of the agreement the loan is to be forgiven provided that there is at least 12,000 ounces of gold produced during the 12 month period which is subject to the 12.5% royalty. A portion of the stockpiled minerals has been collateralized against the bridge funding provided to Blendcore LLC by Diamante for the processing of 12,000 ounces of gold with one processing line.
