Angola diamond output hits 8.6 million cts in 2011 - Report

13 january 2012

Angola's Geology, Mining and Industry minister Joaquim David said the country’s diamond production reached 8.6 million carats in 2011.
He was quoted by Angop news agency as saying that diamond prices had also improved, reaching the pre-crisis levels before tapering off during the second half of the year.
State-owned diamond firm Endiama had projected an output of 9 million carats in 2011 compared with 8.5 million carats in 2010.
Meanwhile, David said that there was an increase in the exploration of gold, phosphate, copper, iron and rare sands, in Angola last year.
"I believe that the new Mining Code and the new National Geology Plan will constitute a legal, solid, transparent, equitable and attractive enough for the real re-launch of the mining sector", he was quoted as saying.
