Aber's 40 percent share of diamonds produced was 3.31 million carats for the year, 9 percent greater than the prior year, with 0.73 million carats being produced in the last calendar quarter of 2005.

The average recovered grade of ore processed during the year was 3.72 carats per tonne.

They are also optimistic that improvements to both mining and processing methods may improve the liberation and recovery of enhanced diamond value".

The results for the full fiscal year ending January 31st 2006, as well as the fourth quarter, are expected to be released during the week of March 13th 2006.

These will be accompanied by a conference call and webcast.
