Argyle Completes Upgrade, Resumes Production

29 june 2009

After three months of not processing a single diamond, Australia's largest diamond mine is now back in production, RAPAPORT reported. The Argyle mine in Western Australia's far north stopped producing to avoid low diamond prices, but was able to keep the majority of its employees working, spending $9 million on upgrading its processing plant.
Maryanne Kelly, general manager of production, said that Argyle is now in a better position to take advantage of higher prices, which she says are just around the corner. "We're starting back up because we want to put diamonds back into the marketplace in a more controlled manner, so we're actually feeding some of our lower-grade material to use it up during tough times," she says.
"It [the lower-grade material] has to go through the processing plant at some stage. We'll feed it through sooner rather then later to enable our plant to run at full production, so that when the price returns [in] mid to late next year, we'll be able to feed higher-grade material and get a better price for our diamonds."
