Stornoway Diamond Corporation reports that overall construction progress at its Renard Diamond Project stands at 96% compared to the recently re-baselined plan of 90% and the initial plan of 82%; the first diamond production is expected to take place later this year. As of the end of May, all major equipment and control systems had been installed in the project’s diamond process plant, primary crusher and processed kimberlite load-out facility. The project’s power plant, water treatment facility and maintenance facilities are fully operational.
