ZCDC identifies another diamond exploration target

28 february 2019

zcdc_logo.pngState-owned Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company is planning to conduct diamond exploration activities in Mahusekwa’s Chihota Communal Land, according to a local newspaper.
The area was previously explored by De Beers in the late 90s to early 2000s.
ZCDC said it would use ground penetrating radar to locate areas of potential which will then be studied in detail by drilling and trenching selected points.
“Bulk samples will then be collected using excavators,” it said.
“These samples will be processed on site using a 10tph mobile DMS plant. All excavation waste material will then be used to backfill all the opened pits.”
ZCDC said last January that it had exploration work scheduled for Chimanimani, Kezi, Binga and Mwenezi.  
The company said it would invest $32 million in exploration projects. 
It was targeting an output of 4.1 million carats this year from 2.8 million carats produced last year.  
Russia’s ALROSA and Chinese partly-owned Anjin were recently selected by Zimbabwe’s government as the two foreign companies to partner the state-diamond firm in exploring and mining diamonds.
