TSX- and Nasdaq-listed Mountain Province Diamonds says it expects to start diamond production at Gahcho Kué flagship in the Northwest Territories sometime during the third quarter, having mechanically completed the primary crusher and progressing with commissioning activities of the process plant.
The Gahcho Kué Joint Venture, a collaboration between De Beers Canada (51%) and Mountain Province Diamonds (49%), continued to progress well, with Mountain Province president and CEO Patrick Evans noting that key remaining areas of focus were finalising commissioning of the process plant, remaining earthworks, pre-stripping and mining of kimberlite, as well as preparations for operational readiness.
