25 july 2012

Namakwa Diamonds has realised revenues of about $4.2 million from its third sale of Kao rough diamonds in Antwerp, with achieved prices 3.4 percent higher than initial management estimates.
It said in a statement posted on its website that the largest diamond sold was 32.38 carats at $2,577.00/ct.
The miner, which offered 51 lots, totaling 14,495 carats said that the Lesotho diamonds were sold at an average price of $286 per carat, with an average diamond size of 0.36cts.
“Our third tender in Antwerp, like the first two, achieved a 100 per cent sell-through and prices ahead of initial expectations even in today’s challenging markets,” said Namakwa Diamonds chief executive Theo Botoulas.
He said the company had since January this year sold a total of 87,011 carats from Kao in eight tenders, generating $24.6 million in revenues.
