Anglo American Announced Diamond Production Increase by 13% in 4Q2013

30 january 2014

Anglo American plc yesterday released its unaudited Production Report for the fourth quarter ended 31 December 2013.
According to the report, the company’s diamond production increased by 13% year-on-year to 9.1 million carats, mainly attributable to the Debswana operations, with Jwaneng increasing production following the slope failure in 2012, and higher grades at Orapa.
Production also increased in South Africa and Canada, on account of improved grades at Venetia and Snap Lake.
Production at Debswana increased by 17% compared to Q3 2013 with the return to operation of the Orapa One plant following unplanned maintenance in Q3. Production at Venetia improved significantly, up 57% on Q3, on account of higher volumes and grades following the recovery from pit flooding earlier in the year. The Canadian operations also showed increased production over Q3 2013, largely due to improved throughput and higher grade at Snap Lake.
The total diamond output of De Beers Group reached 31.159 million carats for 2013 representing 12% growth compared to 27.875 million carats extracted in 2012.
Anglo American noted that Preliminary Results for the full year to 31 December 2013 will be announced on 14 February 2014.
