Diavik Diamond Mine Placed on Care and Maintenance

16 july 2009

The Diavik mine in Canada has temporarily ceased operating, in response to the lower demand for rough diamonds during the global economic downturn. The mine was placed on care and maintenance for a six-week period beginning July 14, mine operator Rio Tinto reported Wednesday. A second six-week closure is scheduled for the winter months, RAPAPORT reported.
Rio Tinto said it expects Diavik to produce between 5 million and 6 million carats of rough diamonds during 2009, compared with the 9.2 million carats it produced in 2008. During the first half of 2009, the mine’s output fell 26 percent to approximately 3.207 million carats, according to Rio Tinto’s second-quarter operations review. Rio Tinto owns 60 percent of Diavik, with Harry Winston holding a 31 percent stake in the mine and Kinross Gold Corporation the remaining 9 percent.
