Jinan Mining, which is mining in the Marange region of Zimbabwe, is considering closing some of its mines in the area due to the expense of underground mining now that diamonds in its alluvial mining operations have depleted. A joint venture with the government-owned Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC), the firm has reportedly been forcing workers to resign, failing to pay salaries and closing some of its mining sites.
