Diamond Discoveries Commences Evaluation of Caribou Property, Thetford Mines, Quebec

Diamond Discoveries International Corp. a U.S. company focusing on diamonds, precious and base metal exploration in the province of Quebec, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Platinum Discoveries Corp, has commenced evaluation of its 100% owned Caribou project in the Thetford Mines area of Southern Quebec. Sampling of the eleven (11) showings that are present on the Caribou Property (Montréal Mine, Caribou Mine, American Chrome Deposit, American Chrome Jr., Finneth, César, Dumais, Vaillancourt, Gagné, Greenshields and Lambly-Nadeau/Victoria Mines) have begun and will be sent to ALS Laboratory Group for assay testing. These showings have shown potential for chromium, nickel and platinum mineralizations. A heliborne geophysical survey is also planned, that in addition to the surface sampling will assist in prioritizing drill targets.

In addition to exploration work carried on by DMDD, Auger Resources Limited, a private Canadian company controlled by Forbes & Manhattan Inc., has begun a major drill program on its historical chromium deposits of Reed Belanger and Hall which are adjacent to DMDD’s Caribou property.

“We are extremely excited to be in such an enviable situation,” said Antonio Sciacca, CEO of DMDD. “Not only are we optimistic by the prospects of the 11 known chromium showings on our Caribou property, but we believe that the drill program on the adjacent property validates our business plan without our company having to use significant capital in phase 1 of our exploration program.” DMDD also has a field office in Thetford Mines that is managed by consulting geologist Bertrand Brassard, P.Geo.

Diamond Discoveries International Corp. is a U.S. exploration company with executive offices in New York, NY and Toronto, Ontario. Since inception through its wholly owned subsidiary Diamond Discoveries (Canada) Inc. it has been focused on diamonds, gold and base metal exploration. In June of 2008 Platinum Discoveries Corp (www.platinumdiscoveriescorp.com) also a wholly owned subsidiary of DMDD, received a NI 43-101 technical report on its Caribou Property, Thetford Mines, Quebec.
