    ...fragmented ownership of the pipe. Peregrine owns 54.475%, while DHK Diamonds Inc owns 20%, Archon Minerals Ltd (ACS-V: $1.60) owns 13.275%, Aber Diamond Corp (ABZ-T: $38.10) owns 7.35% and Southernera Diamonds Inc (SDM-T: $0.40) owns 4.9%. DHK Diamonds is in turn controlled one-third each by Dentonia Resources Ltd (DTA-V: $0.19), Horseshoe Gold Mining Inc (HSX-V: $0.29) and Kettle River Resources Ltd (KRR-V: $0.60). If we ignore the non-diamond projects of the DHK juniors, the market is presently assigning an $85-$120 million project value to Tli Kwi Cho. I believe the latest results are sufficiently robust to justify

    Author’s reply » “Diamond exploration is one of the riski- est businesses on earth,” Passin says.
    Canada, where many of the kimber- lites are in the remote Arctic, is a case in point. After four decades of explora- tion, the country has two mines, Ekati
    and Diavik, 20 miles apart in the Northwest Territories. Ge- ologists Chuck Fipke and Stewart Blusson discovered Ekati in 1991 and own 20 percent of it. Melbourne-based BHP Billiton Ltd., the world’s biggest mining company, owns the rest. Three years later, Doyle and then 26-year-old geologist Eira Thom- as unearthed Diavik. Toronto-based Aber Diamond Corp., the once tiny company that Eira’s father, Grenville Thomas, started in Vancouver, owns 40 percent. The rest belongs to London-based Rio Tinto Group, the world’s No. 3 miner.
    Together, the two mines produce about 11.5 million carats a year, or about 13 percent of the world’s total by dollar value. Three new mines, scheduled to open by 2008, are expected to produce 2.5 million carats a year, or just one-fifth of the haul
    coming out of Ekati and Diavik. “There hasn’t been a monster score in a long time,” says John Kaiser, a Mor- aga, California–based analyst who has a Web site about stocks called Kaiser Bottom-Fish Online, which many in the diamond industry consider required reading.
