As quoted in the market news:

The JV vehicle would purchase all of the issued capital in Superkolong Proprietary (SK), which, in turn, holds a 30.4% interest in Kimberley Miners Forum Proprietary (KMF).

KMF has purchased a number of coarse, diamondiferous kimberlite tailings dumps, while SK operates a diamond tailings processing and recovery plant on land leased from diamond giant De Beers.
