Bonte Koe Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Bonte Koe primarily processes gravel from De Beers' Namaqualand mine on contract. The Bonte Koe mine covers an area of approximately 2,500 hectares along the Buffels River in Namaqualand, a region that has been a significant diamond producing area for the past 40 years. Mining operations in the area have produced an estimated total of over 3 million carats, with an estimated current value of over $750 million. The Buffels River area produces diamonds with an average size of approximately 0.4 carats per stone and a value of over $200 per carat. In 2006, Royal Gems entered into an agreement with De Beers to develop a new mining operation around Bonte Koe to exploit deposits on the Buffels River over which De Beers holds mining rights. Under the terms of the agreement, Global Gems will use the plant and infrastructure at Bonte Koe to process gravel mined by De Beers on a toll-treatment basis. The agreement with De Beers is very significant for Royal Gems as it provides the Company with assured revenue and cash flow for the duration of the Buffels River project. The operation is expected to provide Royal Gems with average annual revenue of approximately £3.5 million and operating profits of £2 million.
