BRC DiamondCore opposes seizure of its records, documents

13 october 2009

Troubled BRC DiamondCore says it is contesting the recent seizure of its records and documents following its liquidation in July for failing to pay ZAR5 million ($670,000) owed to River Corporate Finance.
“There was a warrant which was defective and it wasn’t fully executed,” BRC DiamondCore vice president finance, Brian Scallan told Miningmx.
The liquidators will have no access to these records until the court decides on the matter, he said.
BRC DiamondCore lawyers also argued, without giving details, that the representations made to get the warrant “were false”.
They further argued that a sheriff of the court should have drawn up an inventory before the warrant could be enacted.
Miningmx reported that BRC's proposed sale of alluvial diamond assets to KIG Mining for USD10.7m in cash and shares appears to have been put on ice now that the assets are in a liquidation process.
