Gemfields completes acquisition of Mozambique’s ruby licences

18 december 2014

Gemfields has completed the acquisition of controlling interests in two additional ruby deposits in Mozambique, just over two years after it first announced its interest in the licences.
The licences were formally issued on 22 September 2014 and 12 November 2014 respectively to a new company, Megaruma Mining, in which Gemfields was a 75 percent shareholder.
They are valid for an initial period of 25 years.
"We are delighted to announce the completion of this transaction, which encapsulates our great confidence in future global demand for Mozambican rubies, just as our stellar Singapore auction results did last week, and our belief in the significance of the ruby deposits in this area,” said Gemfields chief executive Ian Harebottle.
“We look forward to working with all our stakeholders in Mozambique in creating the world's pre-eminent ruby supply source."
The two licences share a boundary with Gemfields' existing 75 percent owned Montepuez ruby deposit and cover about 19,000 hectares and 15,000 hectares respectively.
