Grib mine and Karpinskogo mine are first of the kind to be launched in more than 10 years

22 october 2014
LUKOIL’s Grib mine and ALROSA’s Karpinskogo mine were the first two non-alluvial diamond mines with yearly output of greater than one-million carats to be put into production  in more than 10 years, Paul Zimnisky, an independent industry analyst and consultant told Mining Weekly.
"LUKOIL’s Grib which started production this summer, and ALROSA’s Karpinskogo mine, which started production in October, were the first two non-alluvial diamond mines with yearly output of greater than one-million carats to be put into production since Canada’s Diavik mine went online back in 2003," he said.
Both mines are located in Russia, and had yearly production profiles of 4-million and 2.2-million carats, respectively.
Alrosa’s Botuobinskaya mine was nearing completion, with the first mining pencilled in for the middle of next year. The mine was estimated to produce 1.5-million carats a year in Russia’s Sakha region, of Northeastern Siberia, and had a resource of more than 70-million carats.
