The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Tuesday was a horrid 63-111-130. The TSX Venture Exchange lost four points to 593 while polished diamond prices edged lower. Ken MacNeill and George Read's Star Diamond Corp. (DIAM) closed unchanged at 25 cents on 581,000 shares. The company has been silent since fall and will probably remain so until it and Rio Tinto PLC resume their 10-hole bulk sample at Star, in Saskatchewan. That will hopefully be soon but will probably be later this spring.
Peter Dasler's Canalaska Uranium Ltd. (CVV), down one cent to 30 cents on 48,000 shares, is still pondering the diamond possibilities of its Athabasca project in northwestern Saskatchewan. The story burst into the news nearly three years ago when the company staked several dozen circular targets that it thought resembled kimberlites. De Beers Canada thought so too, for a time, and a brief multimillion-dollar option arrangement with Canalaska carried the latter company's stock to a high of $1.55 in mid-2016.
