In Q412, Angola-based diamond miner Sociedade Mineira de Catoca (SMC) was awarded the rights to carry out prospecting for diamonds in the province of Kwanza Sul. The announcement followed the completion of surveying work by SMC in the mining zones of Gango and QuitÃºbia, both of which encompass a concession area of 3,000km sq.
The company installed equipment for prospecting in the area in Q313 in addition to carrying out demining and geological analysis of the region. The project will be the first diamond mining enterprise in Kwanza Sul province and is the culmination of ongoing attempts to launch exploration projects at Gango and QuitÃºbia since 2001. This and other projects will ensure that diamonds dominate Angola´s mining sector for the foreseeable future.
