LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jan. 6, 2014) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce that the January issue of The International Resource Journal is now available at http://www.internationalresourcejournal.com/E-MAG/2014/Jan/IRJ.php.
We welcome the New Year in style with a focus on diamonds and our lead interview with world-leading diamond miner De Beers, whose relocation of its rough diamond sales from London to Gaborone in Botswana was one of the industry's largest shakeups in 2013. We discover the reasons behind the move and what developments De Beers has in store for the country.
Three other diamond miners featured in this issue operate across Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa, and although close in proximity have very different stories to tell.
Gem Diamonds has built up a reputation worldwide for its exceptionally large and high-value diamonds, and expects to open a second mine in Botswana this year. Its Letšeng mine in Lesotho is a low-carat resource, yet simultaneously the highest average dollar-per-carat kimberlite diamond mine in the world.
DiamondCorp is building a new high-grade diamond mine beneath a historic open pit in South Africa, while Firestone Diamonds is close to realising a 15-year operation in Lesotho. We also look at the global diamond industry from different angles: its historical influence, changes that occurred this year and how it should fare in the future.
We cover a wide range of resources this month - encompassing gold, base metals, coal, rare earths, uranium, wood and hydro - in projects all over the world.
