Afri-Can Marine Minerals has received a Toronto Stock Exchange approval to exercise its option to acquire a 20 percent stake in Thyme Investments, which fully owns the Exploration and Prospecting License (EPL) 3403 marine diamond concession, in Namibia.
"We are pleased that the regulatory issues related to the approval have been resolved. The amendment provides better terms for the parties involved,” said company president and chief executive Pierre Leveille.
“Our previous sampling program has demonstrated the considerable potential of EPL 3403 and we are now able to focus on its development in order to unlock value for our shareholders."
EPL 3403 covered approximately 800 square kilometres and was adjacent to and north of the Atlantic One Mining Lease 47, which is owned by Namdeb Diamond Corporation.
ML 47 was currently producing in excess of 1,1 million carats per year, it said.
