Rockwell posts Q3 profit, but warns of tough times ahead

20 january 2009

Junior diamond miner Rockwell Diamonds, which realised a net profit of CND4,53-million for the quarter ended November 30, has warned of tough times ahead if the weak diamond market continues to prevail.
Rockwell Diamonds, which recently extended the annual shutdown of its operations to the end of January, said it was however addressing challenges facing the company.
"We are addressing the latest challenges, which are driven by turbulence in the banking sector, capital markets, and diamond trade, and are mindful of their impact on the company's activities and financial performance in the short-to-medium term," said company chief executive John Bristow.
Rockwell’s revenue from diamond sales, however, declined by about 1,2 percent to CND33,6-million for the nine months ended November 2008, compared with CND34-million the year before, owing to a 55 percent decline in production as a result of industrial action that took place at its mines between July and August last year.
Rockwell Diamonds has an interest in several producing and exploration alluvial diamond properties in southern Africa.
