North Australian Diamonds Limited

Both the rough and retail diamond markets have proved to be remarkably resilient despite being heavily impacted by global economic trends.

Demand for rough diamonds now exceeds supply, with the difference expected to continue over the coming years and result in further price increases. The prognosis for rough diamond prices over the next ten years is very favourable with annual increases of 5% predicted due to declining production from current world reserves and increasing diamond demand.

Rappaport has reported increases of 15-20% across most categories of good quality gem diamonds for the first quarter of 2011, which further confirms the increasing demand. These price movements translate to prices in excess of US$330/ct for Merlin ' Run of Mine' diamonds.
