Dominion Holds Off on Ekati Expansion

22 may 2018
(Rapaport News) - Dominion Diamond Mines has delayed a key extension to its Ekati mine for a second time as it assesses the project’s profitability, according to reports. The miner originally postponed the Jay expansion in June 2016 because it determined that the main Ekati deposit could yield more ore than it had expected. Following that decision, Dominion said it would begin work on Jay in 2018, rather than its original target of 2017. However, the miner has pushed back the project again to study how it can increase Jay’s profitability, CBC News reported, citing a company official.
