Dominion Diamond reports Diavik Mine Q2 production up 17% to 0.62M tonnes

Processing volumes in Q2 were 17% higher than compared to the same quarter of the prior year as a result of improvements in the mining rates as the underground ramp up progressed throughout 2013 to full production from all three kimberlite pipes, and improvements in the availability and utilization of the processing plant. The 38% increase in diamonds recovered in Q2 was the result of a combination of higher realized grades in all three ore bodies, and a higher volume of ore processed.
