Diamond Output Expected to Grow: ZCDC

Diamond output is expected to rise sharply in 2018 and surpass previous records. The Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company invested US$100 million over the last two years and this is expected to boost production. Between January and October 2018, ZCDC extracted 2,4 million carats. This figure is far higher than the 1,8 million carats extracted in 2017. The company is seeking to explore for more deposits within the country. ZCDC chief executive officer Dr Moris Mpofu had this to say

ZCDC will be conducting aero-magnetic surveys, ground penetrating radar, bulk sampling and other forms of exploration and resource evaluation to discover and evaluate diamonds deposits across the country… The company has established a fully-fledged exploration department which it has resourced with skills, drill rigs, mobile processing plants and earth moving equipment required for exploration work.
