Stellar raises over $630k to buy machinery for Tongo, Baoule diamond projects

20 october 2014
Stellar Diamonds has raised about $633,515 before expenses through a subscription of 25,560,016 new ordinary shares at a price of 1.55p per subscription share. The diamond mining and exploration company said in a statement emailed to Rough & Polished that the proceeds would be used to purchase a number of earth moving machines for the Tongo and Baoule projects in Sierra Leone and Guinea.
It said Baoule would receive most of the equipment so as to boost the mining and production rate as part of the large scale bulk sampling, or trial mining, over the next year.
The company recently reported that first diamonds had been recovered from Baoule as part of the successful processing plant commissioning and now looks to increase mining and processing capacity.
Stellar was also progressing the 1.1 million carat Tongo Dyke-1 resource in Sierra Leone through a definitive feasibility study. In addition, the company holds the 3 million carat Droujba project in Guinea and continues to pursue both diplomatic and legal channels to ensure the proper reinstatement of its Kono licences in Sierra Leone.
