“We continue to finalise the necessary export requirements which have proven to be a lengthy process in the current COVID-19 environment. As soon as this is completed, we will commence exports which gives us the flexibility of bridge financing our inventory, if required. Until then we have the option of selling our diamonds locally at a price which allows us to operate profitably.”
