Diamcor Amends Terms of Warrants
June 4, 2021
KELOWNA, June 4, 2021 – Diamcor Mining Inc. (TSX-V.DMI / OTCQB-DMIFF), (“Diamcor” or the “Company”) today announced it intends to reprice 2,857,975 of the Company’s outstanding warrants expiring on June 20, 2021, and 1,755,157 of the Company’s outstanding warrants expiring on August 29, 2021. These warrants were issued pursuant to a Private Placement financing by the Company completed in 2 tranches on June 20, 2018, and August 29, 2018, respectively, each with an original exercise price of $0.60 (the "Warrants"). The Company intends to amend these Warrants to have an exercise price of $0.30 per Warrant and to be extended for up to a year from the current applicable expiry date. As the amended exercise price is below the Market Price for the originating Private Placement, in accordance with Section 3 of Policy 4.1 of the TSX Venture Exchange Corporate Finance Manual, the Warrants are also being amended to include an accelerated expiry clause such that the exercise period of the Warrants will be reduced to 30 days if, for any ten consecutive trading days during the unexpired term of the Warrant (the “Premium Trading Days”), the closing price of the Company’s shares are no less than $0.375. In accordance with TSX Venture Exchange policy, the reduced exercise period of 30 days will begin no more than 7 calendar days after the tenth Premium Trading Day and the Company must obtain the consent of the holders of the Warrants to the amendments in accordance with TSX Venture Exchange policy, as applicable. Further, and in accordance with applicable TSX Venture Exchange policy, if the Company’s directors, officers and Control Persons (as defined under applicable TSX Venture Exchange policy) beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than 10% of the total number of Warrants to be repriced, the aggregate number of their Warrants that will be repriced will be limited to 10% of the total number of repriced Warrants and, in such circumstances, the repricing of the Warrants held by such persons will be done of a pro rata basis amongst said persons.
The foregoing amendments to the Warrants have been authorized and approved by the Board of Directors. The repricing of the Warrants and extension of the expiry date of the Warrants is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all applicable securities laws.

About the Tiffany & Co. Alliance
The Company has established a long-term strategic alliance and first right of refusal with Tiffany & Co.

About Krone-Endora at Venetia
In February 2011, Diamcor acquired the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project from De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited, consisting of the prospecting rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, which represent a combined surface area of approximately 5,888 hectares directly adjacent to De Beers’ flagship Venetia Diamond Mine in South Africa. On September 11, 2014, the Company announced that the South African Department of Mineral Resources had granted a Mining Right for the Krone-Endora at Venetia Project encompassing 657.71 hectares of the Project’s total area of 5,888 hectares. The Company has also submitted an application for a mining right over the remaining areas of the Project. The deposits which occur on the properties of Krone and Endora have been identified as a higher-grade “Alluvial” basal deposit which is covered by a lower-grade upper “Eluvial” deposit. The deposits are proposed to be the result of the direct-shift (in respect to the “Eluvial” deposit) and erosion (in respect to the “Alluvial” deposit) of material from the higher grounds of the adjacent Venetia Kimberlite areas. The deposits on Krone-Endora occur in two layers with a maximum total depth of approximately 15.0 metres from surface to bedrock, allowing for a very low-cost mining operation to be employed with the potential for near-term diamond production from a known high-quality source. Krone-Endora also benefits from the significant development of infrastructure and services already in place due to its location directly adjacent to the Venetia Mine.
