DiamondCore to resume three SA projects, liquidation hearing deferred

22 april 2009

Toronto-and-JSE listed BRC DiamondCore says it is planning to resume diamond-mining activities at Silverstreams, Paardeberg and De Kalk in South Africa, which were suspended late last year as a result of a weak global diamond market.
The diamond explorer could however not specify when operations at these projects would resume. 
Meanwhile, the firm’s financial director Brian Scallan told local media that the Kimberley High Court of South Africa would hear the application for the liquidation of two subsidiary companies of BRC DiamondCore on June 19.
Scallan was quoted as saying that an urgent application for the liquidation of the company had been refused on April 17, after the judge ruled that there was no urgency.
BRC DiamondCore retrenched its entire labour force in the South African operations, and placed the projects on care and maintenance this year.
Trade union Solidarity alleged that a number of workers had not been paid since February and that 188 people were retrenched.
However, Scallan was quoted as saying that arrangements were being made to pay staff and new financial partners were being sought for the company.
Canada’s Banro, which is engaged in gold-mining exploration in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is BRC DiamondCore's main shareholder.
