Production

Q1 2018 PRODUCTION - 8.5M CARATS (+15%)

Rough diamond production for Q1 2018 increased 15 per cent to 8.5 million carats, reflecting the ramp-up of production from Gahcho Kué in Canada, which reached nameplate capacity in Q2 2017, and increased production from Orapa in Botswana in response to the sustained healthy trading conditions.

Rough Diamond Sales

CYCLE 3 2018 - US$520 MILLION (PROVISIONAL)

"While the second quarter of the year is traditionally a seasonally slower period, we continued to see good rough diamond demand in the third sales cycle of 2018 as diamond businesses have focused on restocking following healthy consumer demand for diamond jewellery in the US and China."
