Rockwell Diamonds boosts Q1 output, sales

30 june 2014

Rockwell Diamonds said its first-quarter output leaped 90 percent to 9,162 carats due to the over-recovery of small diamonds fr om old recovery tailings at the Saxendrift Hill Complex and improved output fr om royalty mining contractors operating on the Tirisano property in South Africa.
The company produced 4,362 carats from its operations while royalty mining contractors added 4,800 carats.
Rockwell said it carried forward into the second quarter a considerable inventory of 5,237 carats.
This included the royalty contract miners’ inventory of 2,271 carats.
“These results are underpinned by our increasingly diversified production profile in the MOR (Middle Orange River) wh ere we now have three producing MOR mines, all of which have multiple mining faces. We saw a progressive improvement in production as a result of sticking to our MOR-focused strategy during the first quarter,” company chief executive James Campbell said.
“These culminated in all-time record carat production for the company during the month of May. Contributing to this milestone was the improving performance at Niewejaarskraal wh ere we mined according to the new mine plan and completed the production ramp up.”
Meanwhile, Rockwell said its MOR operations reported a 30 percent increase in carat sales and a 5 percent increase in the value of sales to $6.3-million.
The value of sales from royalty mining contractors increased 132 percent to $2.5-million, of which $312,576 accrued to the company.
