BlueRock operates new Kareevlei plant at design capacity

As part of the one-million-tonne-a-year expansion project at its Kareevlei diamond mine, in Kimberley, South Africa, Aim-listed diamond producer BlueRock Diamonds has successfully operated all key areas of its new production plant at design capacity on a short-cycle basis during the hot commissioning phase.

During the process, the plant team has been making minor modifications to the processing circuit on both lines to adjust to the higher volumes and mix of ore to provide the economies of scale to turn the mine into a highly cash-generative asset.
