South Africa diamond miner Bluerock (AIM:BRD) said today that it upgraded its crushing circuit and installed a larger cone crusher.

The new circuit should handle increased material flows.

Bluerock Diamonds Executive Chairman Mike Houston said previous guidance will be maintained.

"We are pleased that the upgrade of the crushing circuit has been completed. We have taken the opportunity to make a number of improvements to the processing plant during the crusher shut down period and are confident that these improvements will have the desired effect in achieving our targeted level of production in the second half of the year," said Houston.

"Our volume guidance for the year remains at 280,000 tonnes to 335,000 tonnes and, as previously announced, we will refine our guidance following the end of Q3 after the reconfigured plant has been operational for two months."
