Namakwa may inject cash in DiamondCorp to push SA projects

06 october 2009

Speculation is high that a deal was in the offing between Namakwa Diamonds and DiamondCorp, which has been facing serious financial problems because of weak rough diamond prices. 
Namakwa noted in its interim management statement issued earlier in the year that it had cash on hand of USD18.9m.
“We have been talking to everyone in the diamond sector and have followed DiamondCorp’s situation with interest, but there is nothing specific to say at this stage,” Namakwa investor relations spokesman Rob Newman was quoted as saying by miningmx.
DiamondCorp chief executive Paul Loudon also confirmed that his firm had been talking on and off with Namakwa for some time, but nothing concrete had come out.
“We have some offers on the table from investors and existing shareholders and that’s the most likely route that we will take. We have to take a decision one way or another over the next week on how to best preserve value for shareholders in difficult times,” he said.
Trans Hex was also expected to pitch DiamondCorp but analysts said the gem producer had been avoiding kimberlite operations, preferring to stick to alluvial diamond mining.
