Open Pit construction started - then production ceased early 2008 due to financial issues. Low Canadian $ & high diesel fuel prices being cited.

New imagery shows open pit, camp and airstip just to the north. Now operated by Shear Diamonds. Recently recovered 11,000 carats from previously mine ore.
