Diamond juniors listings suspended on JSE

02 july 2009

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) suspended the listings of two South African junior miners after they failed to comply with the listing requirements of the bourse.
JSE said in a statement that Thabex and Kimberley Consolidated Mining (KCM) had failed to submit their provisional reports to the bourse within the stipulated three-month period.
This is not the first time Thabex has had its listing suspended on JSE.
It was suspended on October 1 last year for failing to submit its annual financial statements on time.
However, it was reinstated two weeks later after it had posted its annual report to shareholders.
Operations of the two diamond juniors had been badly affected with lower demand and prices for diamonds.
Thabex, which owned a 70 percent stake in Lesotho-based diamond-miner, Angel Diamonds announced that it would sell 9, 33 percent of its interest in the firm to UK diamond exploration company, Mantle Diamonds.
It had initially planned to sell 42 percent of its stake to Mantle for USD2-million.
Meanwhile, KCM announced in June that it was still in talks with China National Geological & Mining for a possible transaction that would strengthen its cash resources.
KCM scaled down active mining and prospecting operations at its Bo-Karoo mine due to a weak diamond market that was badly bruised by the global economic downturn.
