Illegal miners hit diamond output from Petra’s Kimberley operations

10 may 2018

(miningmx.com) - Illegal mining at Petra Diamonds’ Kimberley Ekapa Mining JV (KEM) near Kimberley affected production during the March quarter by restricting access to high grade dumps at the surface retreatment operation. Petra CEO Johan Dippenaar said the restriction was caused by a combination of “physical blocking” of access to the high-grade dumps as well as impacts on haulage routes used to bring dump material to the treatment plant. The KEM operations have been plagued by the activities of illegal miners for nearly two years despite repeated attempts by Petra – and also by previous owners De Beers – to get the South African Police Services (SAPS) and the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) to take action against the illegals.
