Emu to provide update on SA diamond project, trade halted

11 march 2014

Emu, a junior resource company, with interests in diamond mining in South Africa, has been granted a trading halt by ASX.
The company had requested the halt as it was currently preparing an update relating to its interest in the Superkolong diamond operation in South Africa.
The halt remained in place until the opening of trade on Monday 10th March 2014, or earlier if an announcement is made to the market.
Emu formed a joint venture vehicle with South Africa’s El Nino Mining Proprietary to acquire the diamond operation early last year.
The JV vehicle, at the time, had plans to purchase all of the issued capital in Superkolong Proprietary, which in turn, holds a 30.4 percent interest in Kimberley Miners Forum Proprietary (KMF).
KMF had purchased a number of coarse, diamondiferous kimberlite tailings dumps, while SK operates a diamond tailings processing and recovery plant on land leased from diamond giant De Beers.
The JV partners indicated then that they would upgrade the Superkolong processing plant and operating capacity to some 230,000 t/m.
This was meant to ensure that the Superkolong entitlement was processed promptly so as to enable the JV to pay out the vendors earlier, and deliver an enhanced financial outcome for the Superkolong shareholders.
