The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score for Wednesday was a so-so 83-94-133 as the TSX Venture Exchange fell four points to 577. Ewan Mason's Star Diamond Corp. (DIAM) fell one-half cent to eight cents on 217,000 shares. September is winding down and investors are still waiting for the company to reach a separation agreement with Rio Tinto.
Jim Cambon's Hudson Resources Inc. (HUD) remains all cashed up and ready to roll -- but to where is the question. Hudson, founded by Jamie Tuer 21 years ago, and managed by him as president until he was replaced by Mr. Cambon four years ago, traded as high as $2.41 in 2007 on the strength of its Garnet Lake diamond project in southwestern Greenland.

In 2017, Hudson fought its way back to 80 cents on the strength of its White Mountain anorthosite project, another mineral on another southwestern Greenland prospect.
