(TSX-V:DMI) (the “Company”), announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing of up to $1,000,000.00.  The private placement will consist of the sale of up to 2,500,000 units at a price of $0.40 per unit.  Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant.  Each warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of two years from the closing date. 

Proceeds from the financing will be used for general corporate purposes and in part, to fund some of the costs associated with the purchase of the Krone-Endora alluvial diamond deposit, should the Company conclude a definitive purchase agreement with De Beers Consolidated Mines Limited (“De Beers”).  As previously disclosed in the Company’s news release of May 26, 2008, the Company, through its 70%-owned South African subsidiary, DMI Minerals South Africa (Proprietary) Limited, received confirmation from De Beers that its proposal to acquire the Krone-Endora alluvial deposit (the “Deposit”) was approved as the successful proposal.  The Deposit consists of prospecting rights over the farms Krone 104 and Endora 66, both located adjacent to the De Beers Venetia Diamond Mine in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

The transaction is subject to regulatory, and/or approval of the TSX Venture Exchange along with completion of all definitive documentation and filings as required.  Securities issued pursuant to the above will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day following the closing.

Diamcor Mining is a junior resource company with established operations and production history in South Africa.  The Company is determined to use this established operating history and industry knowledge to increase its current production of diamonds through the development and or, acquisition of additional quality properties in the region.
