Major industry player signs three-year off-take
01 Feb 16
True North’s binding agreement with major Asian gemstone polisher Chinastone, details a three-year commitment for the latter to purchase US$7m (C$9.9m) of Aappaluttoq stones per year for an initial three-year term. Stones will be sold at market prices, paid for solely in cash. This is a major step forwards for the company, and brings on-board a major player in the gemstone market. True North intends to develop this partnership to engage further buyers for its highly marketable and conflict-free pink sapphires and rubies. Consistency of supply is a unique selling point for the company and is underpinned by Aappaluttoq’s mine plan being based on an NI43-101 compliant resource.
Breaking ground in Greenland
04 Dec 15
Mining has started at the Aappaluttoq ruby and pink sapphire mine on schedule and budget, marking a significant milestone in True North Gems' (TGX) history. With specialised process equipment currently being shipped, the mining underway will form a stockpile of raw gemstone-bearing material for subsequent processing towards the end of Q116. While sales contracts are being finalised we suspend our small FY15 revenue assumption as it has a negligible effect on our base case value, reducing it by only 2.6%. Sales contracts for Aappaluttoq material remain the key near-term catalyst to re-rating True North’s shares.
Funded through to production
06 Oct 15
True North Gems (TGX) has secured C$5.3m via a share subscription agreement with Greenlandic private equity/venture capital firm Greenland Venture (GV). This financing effectively completes Aappaluttoq’s mine construction financing, paving the way to first production (expected Q415). A key near-term catalyst remains – sales agreements for Aappaluttoq’s ruby/pink sapphire output – the first of which are expected by year end.

We take a look at the supply and demand dynamics of the world’s largest diamonds. Less than 200 very large (>200 carat) gem quality diamonds have ever been found, yet 23 of these have been found in the past three years. This dramatic increase is being driven by a combination of the rapid increase in the number of billionaires and hence price and demand, combined with technological developments that have improved large diamond recovery and a certain amount of geological good luck.
