Rockwell eyes old diamond deposits - report

30 september 2014
Rockwell Diamonds, an alluvial diamond miner on the Orange River, said it is open to revisiting mothballed diamond deposits if prices of rough stones improve.
Rockwell was currently mining the Niewejaarskraal and Saxendrift Hill properties and was planning a mine at Wouterspan. It holds several prospecting rights in South Africa as well.
"We run at a margin of between $1 and $2 per cubic metre. If diamond prices go up, we can mine even lower grade areas, of which there are vast amounts," company’s chief executive James Campbell said.
He said with a number of failed operations in the area, Rockwell could look at growing its land package.
"What you would like to do is buy the mineral right and not take over the company itself, where there are all kinds of debtors and other litigation,” Campbell said. “Our preference is to buy the assets because that’s cleaner."
He also said that Rockwell sees southern Africa as an opportunity for marginal deposits.
