RAPAPORT... Kennady Diamonds has appointed Rory Moore as its president and chief executive officer, effective May 1. Moore is a former CEO of Mineral Services Group of Companies and Canabrava Diamond Corp.

He replaces Patrick Evans, who has led the diamond exploration company since its incorporation in 2012 and remains president and CEO of Kennady Diamonds’ parent company, Mountain Province Diamonds. The appointment comes as Kennady Diamonds’ exploration project in Canada has advanced to the stage that it requires a dedicated CEO, the company said.

The appointment enables Evans to focus on Mountain Province’s joint project with De Beers to develop the Gahcho Kué diamond mine, which the former has tipped as potentially one of Canada’s major high-grade diamond sources.

Kennady Diamonds’ aim is to identify a resource along the Kelvin-Faraday kimberlite corridor in Canada.

“At a time when most believed that the Kennady North project had few prospects, Patrick assembled a team to resume exploration at Kennady which has resulted in the discovery of four kimberlite pipes within the Kelvin-Faraday corridor,” said Jonathan Comerford, chairman of Kennady Diamonds.

“The methodical advancement of the project has brought Kennady to an advanced stage that requires the time and attention of a dedicated CEO.”
