Botswana Diamonds is exploring in Botswana which is the best diamond address in the world. The company’s experienced team has a successful track record of discovery. This is the team that helped discover the Karowe mine in Orapa, Botswana, which produces extremely high value stones. The company is also exploring in South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The Botswana Diamonds team has been heavily involved in diamond exploration since the 1980’s. The previous diamond company, African Diamonds, developed deposits in Botswana, Sierra Leone and Guinea. It was very successful in finding a kimberlite mine in Botswana, one of only 20 hard-rock diamond mines found outside of Russia. This was a successful partnership with De Beers and later Lucara, part of the Lundin Group. Overall the team has accumulated experience of nearly 200 man-years in exploration, development, mining and marketing diamonds. The team is now using these accumulated skills in Botswana Diamonds (BOD), listed on AIM and the Botswana Stock Exchange.
