Diamcor’s CEO, Dean Taylor, commented on the results.

“We are very pleased with the results of this first tender and sale early in the current quarter and continue to see strong demand for our rough diamonds given their overall quality. Our efforts continue to focus on increasing processing volumes, and the recovery of two large gem quality rough diamonds in the specials category from our recently upgraded facilities at this point is yet further confirmation of the Project’s potential for large high-value gem quality rough diamonds.”
