Gemfields wants rubies follow emeralds’ footprints

17 april 2014

Gemfields wants to boost ruby output, which it mines in Mozambique as it did with emeralds produced at Kagem mine in Zambia, an official has said.
Pallinghurst chairperson Brian Gilbertson was quoted by Mining Weekly as saying that Gemfields was “doing for emeralds what De Beers did for diamonds”.
Pallinghurst previously owned indirect equity interests of 33 percent in Gemfields and 49 percent in Fabergé and also held certain loan interests in Fabergé.
It now owns 48 percent of the enlarged colored gemstone miner and distributor following the completion of a merger between Gemfields and Fabergé last year.
The first rubies auction scheduled to take place before the end of June, would mimic the highly successful emerald auctions.
“We will then be in two of the key gemstones,” said Gilbertson.
Kagem was currently producing between 20 percent and 25 percent of the entire world’s emeralds.
The industry’s pricing process had been transformed through a system of transparent auctions, Mining Weekly reports.
