Angola exports cut diamonds to UAE worth $3.1 mln

09 august 2016
Angola Polishing Diamonds exported 4,462 carats of cut diamonds to the United Arab Emirates last June, raking in $3.1 million.
Macau Daily quoted the country’s mines ministry as saying that the diamonds attracted an average price of $694.5 per carat.
The country also produced 753,000 carats worth $75.35 million during the period under review compared to 736,700 carats produced in May at a value of $74.9 million.
The stones recorded an average price of $100 per carat and were produced from eight of the 12 operational mines in the country.
The improved output was attributed to a marginal 0.82 percent increase in output at Catoca mine, which produces the bulk of the country’s diamonds.
The mine accounted for 620,500 carats of the total output recorded in June.
Macau Daily also noted that the diamond companies operating in Angola paid $5.6 million in industrial tax and royalties during the period under review.
