RAPAPORT... Kimberley Diamonds has received authorization for its environmental impact assessment at the Lerala mine in Botswana. The Botswana Department of Environmental Affairs approved and transferred the authorization to Kimberley Diamonds, having previously approved the assessment for DiamonEx, the former owner of the mine.

The authorization enables Kimberley Diamonds to upgrade the plant, site infrastructure and tailings storage facilities at Lerala as it plans to resume production mid-year 2015.

The company is still required to revise the existing environmental impact assessment and environmental management plan and it expects to submit its final report to the government by the end of January 2015.

The company stated that it expect to obtain the new assessment in May 2015.
