Recently, the Northwest Territories' land and water boardapproved an extendedrevised suspension plan to allow the flooding of Snap Lake in a bid to cutmaintenance costs.

The flooding plan could proceed in the fourth quarter if noqualified buyer is found, Ormsby noted.

Meanwhile, sources said that the level of interest is notclear, given the mine's remote location and technical challenges.

De Beers Canada also operates the diamond mine in Ontario,which is expected to be shut down in 2018 unless an expansion pushes through.
