Fura Gems Inc (CVE:FURA)(OTCMKTS:FUGMF), a gemstone miner with ruby and emerald operations, announced Friday that it has again extended the deadline for its purchase of three ruby assets in Mozambique.

The company said it provided notice to New Energy Minerals Ltd, which owns the ruby licenses, that it would push back the so-called ‘drop dead’ date of the Merger of Ruby Assets Agreement from August 31 to September 30.

The deal will see Fura purchase a 75% stake in Montepuez Minerals Pty Ltd  — which itself owns a majority interest in a ruby license and a ruby concession  — and an 80% stake in a mining concession under a joint venture agreement.
