Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - August 14, 2018) - Dunnedin Ventures Inc.

Claudia Tornquist, President of Dunnedin, said, "To date in 2018 we have successfully extended two of our diamond-bearing kimberlite dikes, discovered a new kimberlite pipe and proven the effectiveness of our methods for locating new kimberlites by analysing at-surface diamond indicator minerals. We are currently awaiting the diamond recovery results from the kimberlite pipes drilled during our recent summer program, which are expected throughout the fall. In the meantime we are preparing to conduct additional field work to inform our next drill program in winter and, working with our advisor and largest shareholder Dr. Chuck Fipke, we continue to prioritize numerous additional kimberlite targets."
Proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the Company's exploration and analysis work on the Kahuna Diamond Project in Nunavut and for general corporate purposes.

About the Kahuna Project
Dunnedin Ventures Inc. (TSXV: DVI) is focused on its 100% owned, advanced-stage Kahuna Diamond Project in Nunavut which hosts a high-grade, near surface inferred diamond resource and numerous kimberlite pipe targets. The Company holds diamond interest in 1,664 km2 of mineral tenure located 26 kilometers northeast of Rankin Inlet and adjacent to Agnico Eagle's Meliadine gold mine. To define and prioritize kimberlite pipe targets Dunnedin has evaluated an extensive historic data set and recovered diamonds and indicator minerals from a series of kimberlite and till samples over three seasons of field work. Working with advisor and largest shareholder Dr. Chuck Fipke, the Company has used the same till sampling and mineral screening protocols employed during Dr. Fipke's discovery of Canada's first diamond mine at Ekati, NWT, but improved by over 20 years of additional diamond data and experience. The Kahuna Diamond Project has an Inferred Resource Estimate of 3,987,000 tonnes at an average grade of 1.01 carats per tonne, totalling over 4 million carats of diamonds (+0.85 mm) (see news release dated March 31, 2015). The largest diamond recovered from the property to date is a 5.43 carat stone from the Kahuna dike which was a piece of a larger diamond that had been broken during the sample preparation process and was reconstructed as having an original size of 13.42 carats. Based in Vancouver, Dunnedin is backed by a world-renowned team of diamond experts with decades of combined experience in Arctic exploration and significant capital market strength.
