Rockwell Diamonds completes growth projects at SA mine

24 may 2012

Rockwell Diamonds has completed the implantation of two strategic projects, namely the new in-field screen and the bulk x-ray as well as the single particle sorter plant at its Saxendrift mine, in South Africa, which is known for its high value gem quality diamonds.
The capital projects, the first to be approved by the board for implementation by the new management, supported Rockwell's strategic growth path.
"The successful implementation demonstrates the team's ability to deliver and reinforces our belief that Rockwell is on track to unlocking the full potential of its Middle Orange River projects and sustainably increasing its production profile," said Rockwell chief executive James Campbell.
He said the new in-field screen, along with contops and a change in the bottom cut-off had enabled the company to increase our monthly volume throughput by over 30 percent whilst maintaining operating costs at the same level as a year ago.
Rockwell said the bulk x-ray technology was also used to process old recovery tailings at Saxendrift last April, adding that a total of 316 stones totalling 1,109 carats were recovered in the first four weeks of production.
