The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Tuesday was a positive 118-72-110 as the TSX Venture Exchange jumped 19 points to 896 while polished diamond prices edged lower. Energy Fuels Inc. (EFR) leapt $1.42 to $9.32 on 2.25 million shares. The company had no news today, but uranium stocks continue to do well.
Dermot Desmond's Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. (MPVD) lost one cent to 45.5 cents on 78,000 shares.

No, I quit!" -- the sophomoric version that usually plays out in a corporate mail room.
