Debswana, the mining firm jointly owned by De Beers and the government of Botswana, is to put major diamond production projects in place at Jwaneng and Orapa in the next five years, its managing director Balisi Bonyongo told the Botswana Resource Sector Conference. He said investments would unlock further diamond potential under a program called Horizon 2.
“We are conducting major studies, conceptually and feasibility wise to make sure we come to a good solution for how we will expand our pits. In fact to make sure we are clear when we will have to go underground at our mines,” he said.
