Included in the parcel were three individual gem quality diamonds in the special (+10.8 carats) category including one high quality 18.44 carat gem octahedron; and two gem quality diamonds weighing 18.57 and 14.70 carats respectively.
“These special diamonds sold for gross proceeds of US$ 195,810, or US$ 3786.70 per carat,” the Company added. “Net of these special category rough diamonds, the balance of the rough diamonds tendered and sold achieved an average price of US$ 207.76 per carat.”
Diamcor CEO, Mr. Dean Taylor commented: “We are very pleased with the results of this tender, and while the recoveries in the special category point to the Project’s potential, the average dollar per carat achieved before and after the inclusion of specials, is also very encouraging. Our current efforts at the Project are focused on increasing processing volumes and enhancing operating efficiency and consistency.”
