hmmm... Angola to double diamond production in 2006 afrol News, 14 March - Angola's national diamond company Endiama has announced that it expects to double its production capacity in 2006. Endiama's current capacity is about 6 million carats of diamonds per year. If the state company reaches its target, Angola will surpass South Africa and become Africa's third largest diamond producer, after Botswana and Congo Kinshasa (DRC). The industry however still faces many problems. According to information released by the Angolan government's AgĂȘncia Nacional para o Investimento Privado (ANIP), the national diamond mining sector is experiencing a boom-like revival. During the last decade, diamond production has been around 3 to 5 million carats annually, recovering to an estimated 6.5 million carats currently, following the end of the civil war. Angola's diamond production is mostly controlled by the state-owned Empresa Nacional de Diamantes de Angola (Endiama). Endiama's current capacity is about 6 million carats of diamonds per year, but the company has now announced plans to double its production capacity during the next year. By end-2006, Endiama thus plans to produce 12 million carats annually. The production increase was due to the start-up of the parastatal's new exploration and production arm (Endiama-EP) and expected new production from six diamond projects coming on line. In the Camanjanja area of Lunda-Norte province, Endiama-EP will begin mining diamonds independent of any other company. This will be the first time the company has operated independently. Endiama-EP expects to produce around 7,000 carats of diamonds per year from this project alone, according to ANIP. Endiama further plans to use the additional revenue to build a new diamond cutting plant and improve local infrastructure in areas where it is operating. The production increase announced by Endiama would significantly increase Angola's share of the world's diamond trade. Measured in carats, Angola in 2003 was the world's seventh largest producer and measured in value, the country came fifth world-wide. Australia produced most diamonds counted in carats in 2003, while Botswana by far was the world's greatest producer in value. If Endiama's plans are realised, Angola's annual diamond production in 2007 may reach around 13 million carats annually, worth an estimated US$ 2.2 billion, if the same quality is maintained. Angola's diamond production could thus surpass those of Canada and South Africa, making the country the world's fifth largest producer. In Africa, only Botswana and Congo Kinshasa (DRC) would then be producing more diamonds. Angola's diamond industry for a long time was bad reputed due to the gems' fuelling of the country's bloody civil war. Most operational diamond mines were under control of the UNITA rebels during the civil war. The Angolan government now claims to have cleaned up the sector, following guidelines by the international Kimberly Process. A recent report by Angola's prominent journalist and civil rights campaigner Rafael Marques however claims that the national diamond industry still is beset by "murders, beatings, arbitrary detentions and other human rights violations." The report, 'Angola's Deadly Diamonds', called on the international community to boycott Angolan gems as diamond mining in the country was "based on the systematic violation of human rights," thus making them "conflict diamonds". Also the Angolan government agree that all is not well in the sector. Officials assume that the state is losing as much as US$ 375 million in revenue every year because of diamond smuggling. In December 2003, the government launched 'Operation Brilliant', a plan to arrest and expel those found illegally mining the gems. So far more than 250,000 miners and smugglers have been deported from Angola, according to the UN. also...
20% jump up on no uk trades today, although above shares were admitted to aim today. this from a larger (slightly out-of-date) article on diamond mining in angola. lets hope that some of the above money can be used to help get camafuca rolling... Southern Era is currently investigating the Camafuca - Camazambo kimberlite pipe in the Calonda area of the Lunde Norte province. Camafuca is estimated to be the world's largest undeveloped diamondiferous pipe with a surface area of 160 hectares. The pipe is approximately 3.3 kilometres in length and 500 metres in width, and lies 40 kilometres north of the Luo concession on the Chicapa River. Camufuca was the first kimberlite pipe to be discovered in Angola. Recent sampling of the Camafuca pipe yielded just over 1000 carats from a bulk sample of 3 500 m3treated. This represents a significant increase from previous historical estimates. Grades ranged from $126 - $140/carat, with 32% of the diamonds being greater than 1 carat in size and 21% greater than 2 carats. A feasibility study to evaluate the technical and economic viability of the project is essentially complete and was presented to the Camafuca partners in April, 2000. Plans are to develop the higher grade portions of the pipe first - an exercise that is estimated to cost $14 million. The partners have accepted the feasability study and now plan to move ahead with the development of Phase 1 that intends developing the southeastern part of the kimberlite that contains 6.1 million cubic metres of material at an average grade of 0.18 carats per cubic metre. Mining of Camafuca has been complicated by a major river that dissects the kimberlite - initial mining will utilise dredging methods. Ownership of the project is outlined as follows: SouthernEra Angola LDA 32%, followed by Endiama 20%, SML 15% and the Welox Limited 33%. Welox Ltd is part of the Leviev Group of companies . In mid 2002, the Angolan Government formally approved the operating agreement and formation of the operating company, to be called Sociedade Mineira do Angola, Lda (SMC).

Press Release Source: Peregrine Diamonds Ltd. Bulk sample drilling on DO-27 kimberlite pipe, NWT, Canada, began Feb. 25, 2005 Monday March 7, 1:12 pm ET VANCOUVER, March 7 /CNW/ - Mr. Eric Friedland, President of Peregrine Diamonds Ltd ("Peregrine"), is pleased to announce that the extraction of a 200 tonne bulk sample using a 14-inch diameter Reverse Circulation (RC) drill rig began at the DO-27 kimberlite pipe, NWT, Canada, on February 25, 2005. The program will consist of 5 drill holes, to be drilled at and around the centre of the Southern Lobe of the pipe, to an average depth of 250 meters. The kimberlite material will be processed at BHP Billiton's Ekati(TM) Diamond Mine from mid to the end of March, in order to determine macro grade and diamond quality. The cost of the bulk sample program will be borne entirely by Peregrine in order to increase its ownership in the project from 38.475% to 54.475% plus Operatorship. In addition, Peregrine, DHK Diamonds Inc., Archon Minerals Ltd., and SouthernEra Diamonds Inc., have agreed, following the extraction of the 200 tonne sample, to conduct a jointly funded N.Q. sized core drilling program, as close as possible to the 5 RC holes. Three holes will be drilled to a depth of 250 meters, and 2 holes to a depth of 600 meters, at an estimated cost of Cdn.$500,000. It has been noted that some of the kimberlite pipes in the Northwest Territories have a marked increase in grade with depth and the two 600 meters holes will explore this possibility for DO-27. It should also be noted that none of diamond core holes drilled in DO-27 by Kennecott Canada Exploration in 1993 went beyond a depth of -215 meters and that Kennecott's underground bulk sample drift itself, in 1994, leveled out at -100 meters below the surface, or only -50 meters below overburden, and never entered the higher grade portion of the Southern Lobe. The bulk sample, coupled with the N.Q. core drilling, will now properly test the Southern Lobe. This N.Q. core, initially, will likely be stored and logged, pending the analysis of the sample, before being subjected to caustic fusion and micro diamond grade analysis. Since this present bulk sample will be limited to 200 tonnes, this additional information is required to construct a statistical model of the DO- 27 kimberlite pipe to assess its commercial viability and to assist in further exploration. A similar methodology appears to have been employed by DeBeers and Kensington at their Fort a la Corne kimberlites, where a recently completed exploration program on the No. 140/141 pipe consisted of five core and five large diameter RC holes.

Upon the completion of the reorganization of SouthernEra Resources Limited on September 1, 2004, shareholders of SouthernEra Resources Limited on the Record Date became shareholders of two separate publicly-traded companies: SouthernEra Diamonds Inc. and Southern Platinum Corp. Every shareholder held one SouthernEra Diamond (formerly SouthernEra Resources) Common Share and received one Southern Platinum Common Share for every SouthernEra Resources Limited Common Share held. november presentation: march 05 presentation: stockhouse board: this global diamond explorer hasnt had a happy start to its life as a seperately listed company in canada and a newly listed one on aim. however, theres a lot of interesting stuff on the books (including a producing mine in south africa - which currently non-producing) and an 18% free carried interest in a big angolan field (unfortunately undeveloped as yet). also exploring in congo, australia, canada, and gabon. they say... That this represents the fourth most active global diamond exploration program after the majors DeBeers, BHPB and Rio Tinto. that said, the cash position looks unsure, with a placing at the end of last year abandoned as couldnt get the price they wanted. but on the bright side, the board subscribed to a private placement at a premium to the then current share price the other day. a november canaccord note reckoned they were well undervalued and put a 62p short-term target on them, taking the view that the board would be able to juggle things and get something rolling.
