BRC Diamondcore to challenge liquidation order

10 july 2009

Diamond exploration company BRC Diamondcore says it would challenge the Northern Cape High Court order for the liquidation of the company’s wholly owned Diamond Core Resource subsidiary in South Africa.
BRC Diamondcore South African vice-president Brian Scallan said in a statement that the ruling had denied BRC Diamondcore’s application to reopen the liquidation application before the court ruling.
“The company will be appealing the judgment, initially as the judgment creditors claim is disputed and secondly in that, as announced, the company entered into a heads of agreement with KIG Mining Plc  with regard to the proposed purchase by KIG of BRC's South-African-based alluvial diamond projects, consisting of the Silverstreams, De Kalk, Muishoek, Sanddrift and Uitdraal projects, together with the processing plant, mining fleet and equipment which are associated with these,” he said in a statement.
Scallan also noted that proceeds from the disposal of the projects to KIG would be enough to cover “valid claims” from South African creditors, which the company wanted to settle.
BRC Diamondcore noted that the South African DCR assets were regarded as non-material to the on-going operations of the company, adding that core assets were its exploration properties in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
“The ability to complete the asset sale transaction with KIG may be adversely affected if the Company is unsuccessful in its appeal of the judgment,” it said.
