Dominion Diamond Corp (DDC.TO) (DDC.N) and fellow Canadian diamond miner Stornoway Diamond Corp (SWY.TO) have held talks for a potential merger in recent months, people familiar with the matter said on Monday.

World No. 3 diamond miner Dominion, which is being targeted by U.S. billionaire Dennis Washington, and Stornoway, a small miner with a diamond mine in Quebec, declined to comment. The people declined to be named as the discussions are private.
