At this past weekend’s Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, Diamond Investing News had the opportunity to speak with Dean Taylor, CEO of Diamcor Mining, about what makes his company successful and what it has planned for 2014.

In the interview below, Taylor explains why investors should be excited about Diamcor’s South Africa-based Krone-Endora at Venetia project, notable for its proximity to Venetia, one of the world’s largest diamond mines, as well as the fact that it used to be owned by De Beers. He also touches on how the company’s strategy of targeting deals with near-term production potential has been beneficial.

Taylor ends by commenting on where he sees diamond prices heading in 2014. “We expect to see diamond prices increase somewhere between 3 and 5 percent year-over-year as an average for the entire grouping,” he said.

The interview is currently under review. Please check back later.
