BlueRock Diamonds will recommence operations at a mine in South Africa’s Northern Cape province on August 29, after implementing the necessary adjustments to regain compliance with the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).

A DMR visit to the Kareevlei mine on July 6 found operations were not ”compliant” in two areas: “processing plant procedures and guarding rails on the plant” and “trackless mobile machinery,” according to a company statement in July.

“Initially we will be processing 30,000 to 50,000 tonnes of Kimberlite lying in stockpiles close to our plant,” Adam Waugh, BlueRock’s chief executive officer, said in a separate statement August 26.

The company is targeting production volumes of more than 20,000 tonnes per month.
