Firestone Diamonds expects to resume Liqhobong operations in November

Firestone Diamonds PLC said Oct. 15 that it is expecting to resume normal plant processing operations in early November at the Lesotho-based Liqhobong mine, which remains without sufficient power.

The company said that it has already placed an order for diesel generator units, which are scheduled to arrive on site by the end of October.

The generators are set to be used to provide power until grid power is restored from the Muela hydropower station, which is expected to take place on Dec. 1.

Operating costs, however, are expected to increase due to the generator units' rental and associated diesel consumption.

The company, meanwhile, will continue to engage with both the Lesotho Electricity Company (LEC) and ESKOM, South Africa's power utility to try to resolve the interruption of grid power to the mine.
