June 30, 2006 A 10 tonne per hour DMS plant has completed the processing of 2,000 tonnes of kimberlite excavated from the K1 pipe. Results show that the material processed has a grade of approximately 5 carats per hundred tonnes.
April 26, 2006 In early 2006 a 2000 t trial mining program commenced at K1. The objective of the program is to
achieve a more accurate estimate of grade, stone size distribution and average diamond values.
November 21, 2005 Approximately 500 tonnes of kimberlite tailings from a previous bulk sampling program were re-processed by the DMS plant at Kareevlei Wes to check on the efficiency of a rented DMS used previously.
