Leviev strikes Angolan diamonds deal - report

24 june 2014

Israeli real-estate magnet and billionaire Lev Leviev is said to have struck a deal with Angola allowing him to charge more for diamonds he mines in the southern African country.
Bloomberg quoted “people with knowledge of the agreement” as saying that he would be able to sell gems from his Luminas mine on world markets instead of at a discount to specified Chinese and Dubai traders.
This, the financial news agency reports, would likely enable Leviev to raise prices by as much as 50 percent.
A spokesperson for Leviev’s Africa Israel Investments declined to comment.
No comments were also obtained from Angola’s state-owned diamond company Endiama EP and the state marketing unit Sodiam.
Diamond miners in Angola must set up ventures with Endiama and then sell production through Endiama subsidiary Sodiam.
Angola, the fourth-biggest diamond producing country by value, was looking to soften restrictions that deter exploration and development after producers abandoned the country during the global financial crisis, Bloomberg reports.
