    VANCOUVER, June 4 /CNW/ - John Bristow, CEO, one of the Executive
Directors of Rockwell Diamonds Inc. (TSX: RDI; JSE: RDI; OTCBB: RDIAF)
retracts recent comments made by him to Allan Seccombe Managing Editor of
mining website Miningmx and in a podcast carried by These comments
downplayed management's concerns about the delayed release of audited results
and the reasons for such delay.
    Executive management, together with the directors, is taking the ongoing
issue of the internal control breakdown very seriously and is taking steps to
correct the matter. Executive management will be seeking to recruit additional
senior accounting personnel, a shortage of which management believes lies at
the heart of the problem. No implication to the contrary was intended in the
Miningmx and interviews.
