Diamond Fields gets SA marine phosphate exploration licence

17 january 2014

Diamond Fields has been granted a marine exploration license for phosphate and associated minerals by the South African government.
The company, which also owns a marine diamond project in Namibia, said in a statement that the exploration licence was valid for a period of five years in the first instance, and extends over an area of approximately 47,468 km2 within the Outeniqua Basin in the South Western Cape.
The license was awarded following an extensive environmental management plan compiled by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and public consultation with interested and affected parties, it said.
"We see a lot of growth potential in the rock phosphate market," said Diamond Fields chief executive Ian Ransome.
"We believe this deposit has the potential to yield a low-cost, high-quality rock phosphate product for the fertilizer and related industries. The potential of the resource in the South Western Cape is tremendous and the offshore nature of the deposit dovetails perfectly into Diamond Fields' extensive experience in marine mining in this part of the world."
Diamond Fields intends to fast track the project through to the production of a high-quality rock phosphate product, subject to determination of a current resource estimate and economic feasibility.
