- BlueRock Diamonds said former chief Riaan Visser had notified the company that he intended to place its operating subsidiary, Kareevlei Mining, in provisional liquidation.

BlueRock Diamonds conformed that it had taken legal advice and remained of the view that based on currently available information the claims are without merit.

No material new information has been provided by Visser at this stage, BlueRock Diamonds said.

'Accordingly, the company intends to vigorously defend itself in this matter,' it added.
