Global Diamond Reserves were 730 Million Carats (Mct)

Date: 2015-09-11

“• Diamond mainly occurs in kimberlite, lamproite and alluvial deposits. The world’s largest kimberlite reserves are found in Botswana’s Orapa region and in South Africa, while alluvial deposits are found mainly on the Atlantic coasts of South Africa and Namibia.

• The Australian Argyle mine in Kimberley region hosts lamproite deposits. Global diamond reserves were 730 million carats (Mct) as of January 2015, with Australia, Botswana and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) collectively accounting for 72% of the total. 

• Globally, the accessibility of diamond deposits and the depth of occurrence are increasing challenges to the expansion of global diamond mining operations, with projects becoming more capital intensive, necessitating substantial investments, especially in technology.”
