Gem eyes first sale of diamonds from Botswana mine next Feb

11 november 2014
Gem Diamonds said it expects to sell the first 4,028 ct of diamonds recovered at its Ghaghoo mine, in Botswana, next February.
The underground mine was officially opened in September.
Gem said in an interim management statement emailed to Rough & Polished that the sale of diamonds from Botswana would be held together with gems recovered at its Letšeng mine, in Lesotho.
This was meant to allow existing customers to participate.
It also said the Letšeng mine produced 28,365 ct in the third quarter of the year, ended September 30 compared with 28,623 ct produced in the second quarter.
Meanwhile, the company said the development at Ghaghoo was progressing in four production tunnels within the kimberlite on Level 1.
The marginal drop was attributed to lower tonnes treated as a result of the replacement of a vertical conveyor on Plant 2 coupled with higher percentage of ore being sourced from the Main pipe during the third quarter.
