Dominion Diamond reports processing volume in Q1 increased 17% YoY Dominion Diamond reports that in the first calendar quarter of 2014, the Diavik Diamond Mine saw continuing strong performance. During the first calendar quarter of 2014, the Diavik Diamond Mine produced 1.9M carats from 600,000 tonnes of ore processed compared to 1.9M carats from 500,000 tonnes of ore processed in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Processing volumes in the first calendar quarter of 2014 were 17% higher compared to the same quarter of the prior year as a result of continuing improvements in mining rates as the underground ramp up progressed to full production from all three kimberlite pipes. Carat production from first quarter 2014 was 4% lower compared to the comparable quarter of the prior year, primarily as a result of mining and processing a greater proportion of the lower grade A-154 North ore.
