Diamcor said in addition to the recovery of these special category diamonds, about 2,400 carats of rough diamonds were recovered.

"With these initial modifications meeting or exceeding expectations, our focus will now shift to running increasing volumes in the coming weeks, and to completing the installation of the paste thickener system to allow for us to further increase processing volumes for the long term."
