Prospect-generator CanAlaska Uranium (TSXV: CVV; US-OTC: CVVUF) is not a name commonly associated with diamonds, but on May 18 it announced a $20.4-million option agreement with De Beers' Canadian subsidiary on 75 "kimberlite-style" targets staked on the Saskatchewan side of the northwestern portion of the Athabasca basin.

The junior acquired the claims after its vice-president of exploration Karl Schimann, reviewed a high-resolution airborne geophysical survey carried out by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey in 2011. The results revealed discrete magnetic anomalies with a shallow signature northeast of the Carswell structure and close to the large, crustal Grease River shear zone.
