Second Dubai auction of Zim diamonds begins

22 july 2014

Zimbabwe has started auctioning about 1 million carats of diamonds at the Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE).
This was the second time that Harare was convening an auction in Dubai and the fourth public sale of its diamonds since December 2013.
The Sunday Mail newspaper reports that the auction set to last for two weeks, would likely earn Harare an average of $100 per carat compared to the previous $76 per carat.
Mbada Diamonds, Anjin, Jinan, Diamond Mining Corporation, DTZ-OZGEO, Marange Resources and Kusena had submitted parcels totalling 960 000 carats, according to Mines and Mining Development permanent secretary Professor Francis Gudyanga.
The State-owned weekly claimed that mining authorities had been holding high-level meetings to seek marketing alternatives that would boost the average price per carat to over $100.
It also noted that DDE was chosen ahead of other international diamond auction centres such as Antwerp, Shanghai, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong that had also submitted bids to auction the gems.
