Peregrine Confirms Coarse Diamond Size Distribution in North and South Lobes of Ch-7 Kimberlite At Chidliak

Press Releases February 22, 2011

Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. (“Peregrine” or “the Company”) is pleased to report microdiamond results showing a coarse diamond size distribution from drill core and reverse circulation (“RC”) drill cuttings acquired from the north and south lobes of the CH-7 kimberlite on the 8,580 square kilometre Chidliak project (“Chidliak” or “the Project”) on Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. In the summer of 2010, samples were collected from both lobes of CH-7 in an effort to assess diamond distribution throughout the pipe and to test the diamond content at depth in the north lobe below the site where a 47 tonne mini-bulk sample was collected. A sample from the south lobe weighing 569.0 kilograms yielded 1,208 diamonds larger than the 0.106 mm sieve size, including 24 diamonds larger than the 0.850 mm sieve size which weigh a total of 0.386 carats. A 359.5 kilogram sample from the north lobe yielded 681 diamonds larger than the 0.106 mm sieve size, including 17 diamonds larger than the 0.850 mm sieve size which weigh a total of 1.05 carats. The CH-7 pipe is one of seven diamondiferous kimberlites at the Project discovered to date that have economic potential in Arctic settings. Six of these pipes, including CH-7, are located within an area that has an eight kilometre radius, the Southern Focus Area. Additionally, four kimberlites discovered during the 2010 exploration programme, CH-29, 32, 36 and 41, have now been confirmed to be diamondiferous.
