Stellar sees diamond grades increasing at Tongo project

15 may 2014

Stellar Diamonds said the processing of bulk sample material at its Tongo kimberlite dyke project in Sierra Leone is yielding higher diamond grades than previously reported.
It said in a statement emailed to Rough & Polished that processing to date had yielded 730 carats for an increased undiluted grade of 134cpht.
Stellar was anticipating that these increased grades would enhance the project’s global resource and economics, where the independent JORC resource currently stands at 1.1milllion carats at a grade of 120 cpht for just one of four kimberlite dykes within the licence area.
“The diamond quality at Tongo continues to impress with a high percentage of gem quality stones of up to 6.7 carats in size,” said Stellar chief executive Karl Smithson.
“We expect to conclude our bulk sampling in June 2014 when a 1,000 carat parcel will be available for diamond value modelling as part of a definitive feasibility study, due for 2015.”
