Botswana, SA highly prospective says De Beers
De Beers, a leading global diamond miner in terms of value, said Botswana and South Africa are both highly prospective and geologically form part of the same cratonic region in Southern Africa. The group’s head of media relations Lynette Gould told Rough&Polished’s African Bureau Editor-In-Chief Mathew Nyaungwa that although they had been continuously prospecting for kimberlites in Botswana since 1955, the diamond producer historically had less access to prospective ground in South Africa due to the mineral legislation pre-1994, but with the introduction of the new legislation in 2004, new areas had opened up. Meanwhile, the group said it was currently having discussions with the Angolan government and state-diamond company Endiama for new concessions.

Anjin Investments, a joint diamond mining venture between China’s Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Company Limited and the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation, is now the world’s biggest diamond producer, a company official said last Wednesday, Israelidiamond.co.il reported.
The China/Zimbabwe joint venture began mining diamonds in the Marange fields in July 2010, but only recently has received permission from the Kimberley Process to export its rough diamonds. The company reportedly has a stockpile of some 3 million carats.
According to Anjin director Munyaradzi Machacha, the Anjin has a production capacity of 12,000 tons of ore per day. This week, two additional processing units are scheduled to begin operating.
