Diavik Diamond Mine Q2 2008 News Release

News release
25 July 2008

(Yellowknife, NT) Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. (DDMI), the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine is pleased to report on work during the second quarter of 2008.

Ore production accelerated in the second quarter in line with plan due to improved operating conditions. Ore was mined predominantly from the A154 South kimberlite pipe, with smaller tonnages mined from the A154 North and A418 pipes. The A418 ore was mined as part of ongoing pre-stripping of waste overburden to prepare the second open pit. This initial ore is low grade weathered kimberlite capping the pipe and diluted with overlying glacial till. Full scale open pit production from A418 is scheduled to begin in earnest late this year. Natural grade variation in the A154 pipes combined with the low grade nature of the A418 production of ore mixed with waste overburden material resulted in 2.522 million carats of diamonds being recovered during the quarter, 23 per cent below the same quarter of 2007. Diamond production is now forecast to be from 10 to 10.5 million carats in 2008.
