10 april 2014

Zimbabwe raked in ‘big money’ at the first rough diamond auction in Dubai during the last week of March 2014, thanks to high demand from Indian buyers. The first tender sales totalled $29.2 million, with most of the stock purchased by the Indian diamond companies and traders, as reported in TOI. The tender auction, organized by the Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE) was facilitated by Global Diamond Tenders in cooperation with the Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC).
The rough diamonds offered in the auction were mined by companies like Anjin, Jinan, DTZ-Ozgeo, Diamond Mining Company (DMC), Marange Resources, Mbada Diamonds and Kusena. Zimbabwe's Mine's Minister, Walter Chidhakwa said the tender earned $4.3 million for the government through royalties. The average price of the Zimbabwe diamonds sold was $76 million per carat, while the highest price per carat reached $5,000
Peter Meeus, Chairman of the DDE said, "The DDE has and will continue to support African diamond markets by ensuring that appropriate infrastructure is available to facilitate the trade between producing and consuming nations. We are extremely pleased with the high prices that were reached and stand ready to assist the government of Zimbabwe in future initiatives."
