Gem delays production at Botswana mine after accident

20 june 2012

Gem Diamonds said that production at its Ghaghoo project in Botswana will commence later than originally expected following an accident that killed two employees.
Production at the Ghangoo mine was scheduled to start in 2013 at an initial rate of 100,000 carats per year, rising to a peak steady state production of 780,000 carats per year.
It said in a statement that diamond production was now not expected to start until the first half of 2014.
"The company again extends its condolences to the families of the two deceased and commits itself to continuing to strive for the highest safety standards for its employees and contractors at all of its operations," said chief executive Clifford Elphick.  The group was currently constructing the treatment plant at the site.
It said Ghaghoo was still on budget with some $31 million of the overall budget of $85 million already spent.
