As quoted in the press release:

ALROSA’s 9M 2016 diamond production totalled 27.9 million carats, down 6% y-o-y, driven by the following factors:

  • decrease in gravels processing from Nyurba Division’s alluvial placers due to adjustment of 2016 production plan,
  • decrease in ore production at Aikhal underground mine due to processing of additional volumes from Komsomolskaya pipe at the Processing Plant No. 8 – following completion of expansion works at the open pit.
  • due to the termination of open-pit mining at Udachnaya pipe.

Preliminary sales performance
Indicatively, in Q3 2016 ALROSA sold 8.3 million carats of diamonds, including 5.8 million carats of gem-quality diamonds at an average price of USD 165 per carat and 2.5 million carats of industrial diamonds at an average price of USD 7 per carat.
