The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Thursday was a discouraging 62-105-143 as the TSX Venture Exchange fell nine points to 601. Ewan Mason and George Read's never-say-die Saskatchewan diamond explorer, Star Diamond Corp. (DIAM) rose one-half cent to 7.5 cents on 207,000 shares. The company, which hopes to mine its mammoth Fort a la Corne project in central Saskatchewan for generations, held its annual general meeting last week.

In 2016, the long-time bulls nearly succeeded, as former president and chief executive officer, Ken MacNeill, and two of his associates, Harvey Bay and Arnie Hillier, clung to office with just 51-per-cent support. (Arguably the dissidents did succeed -- the company extended the voting deadline by a few days while they garnered last-minute support -- although on the other hand, the company groused that the dissident proxy votes were improperly solicited.)
