DiamondCorp, the Southern African diamond mining, development and exploration company, is pleased to advise that the Section 54 underground shutdown instruction issued last week by the South African Department of Mineral Resources with respect to the Lace diamond mine has been lifted and mining has resumed.


The financial impact of the four days of mining lost as a result of the shutdown instruction has been minimised by a rescheduling of programme maintenance and the fact that the mine was ahead of its planned tonnage for the month at the time of the shutdown.
