Latest Updates & Forecasts

- Botswana's diamond exports fell 5% to USD400mn in August 2016. Over H116, exports are 1.8% lower y-o-y.

- On September 12 2016, Tango Mining's deal with Firestone Diamonds to acquire the latter's BK11 diamond mine fell through as Tango was unable to raise the required USD8mn to finance the deal.

- In April 2016, UK-owned diamond exploring company Botswana Diamonds begun drilling at the PL260 and PL21 licences in the Orapa mining province. The company secured exploration rights for the area in 2015 as part of a 50:50 joint venture with Russian miner Alrosa.

- In the same month, the company announced its interim results for the six-month period ending December 31 2015, reporting a net loss of USD388,000. Botswana Diamonds chairman John Teeling attributed the loss to the current depression in global diamond prices and a lack of investor interest in exploration companies.

- The decision by the Botswana government to award a tender for the construction of units 7 and 8 at Morupule B to a South Korea-based consortium could negatively impact Botswana's own local coal producing companies. The government's decision could constrain investment and participation of privatesector coal companies, who will be less inclined to assist with diversifying the economy away from diamond exports.
