Kimberley Diamonds raises $4m

28 june 2016
Kimberley Diamonds has completed a capital raising of $4,024,678 via the issue of 40,246,783 ordinary fully paid shares at $0.10 per share.
China-based auction house Zhejiang Huitong Auction, which had previously lent the miner $13-million, was issued 7,041,202 of the shortfall shares worth $704,120.
The issue to Zhejiang was partly in payment of the interest.
Placement of the rights issue shortfall completed on 24 June 2016, with 100% of the available shortfall shares successfully placed with sophisticated and professional investors, raising $3,572,944.  
Kimberley Diamonds now owes Zhejiang approximately $11.3 million, it said.
The first sale of diamonds recovered from Kimberley’s Lerala Diamond Mine in Botswana would be held by online auction from Antwerp, Belgium on 28 June.
Processing operations at the mine commenced last May.
Lerala was expected to produce an average of 357,000 carats per year once in full production.
