Diamond explorer searches for new deposits in Botswana

16 january 2012

Botswana Diamonds has engaged a technology company as it gears up efforts to search for new diamond deposits in the north-eastern parts of the country.
"We are in advanced negotiations to partner with a group who have new technologies and approaches," Mmegi newspaper quoted company chairman John Teeling as saying.
"The objective of the joint work is to identify large diamondiferous kimberlite pipes with the potential to become high-volume, high-value long life mines. The initial focus of this new venture will be in north-east Botswana, including the Orapa area.”
He said Botswana Diamonds had applied for new prospecting licences in the Orapa area after failing to find any diamonds of commercial value on two of its targeted kimberlites, BK5 and AK8, last year.
Meanwhile, Teeling said that the company would also start its sampling programme early this year on its discovery in Cameroon."
