Diamond cutting and polishing

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

(proposed by the Industrial Development Coperation of Zimbabwe )

Zimbabwe has recently discovered additional diamond deposits in addition to those that already exist and are already being mined. The deposits are located in the South Eastern part of the country (Manicaland Province).Diamond cutting and polishing in Zimbabwe

The Corporation is seeking potential investment partners to establish a joint venture to undertake both mining and polishing of the diamonds. The project will be implemented in three phases:

  • The first phase is a normal cutting and polishing factory of modest size to process 400 carats per month at an estimated cost of US$6S 000.
  • The second phase will expand the cutting and polishing from 400 to 1200 carats per month. This will also include bringing in laser cutting equipment to handle all types of diamonds found in Zimbabwe. Phase two is estimated at US$126 000.
  • Phase three will involve setting up and equipping of a certification laboratory under a global franchise from renowned players in the industry.

IDC is therefore seeking investment partners to kick start the initial phase with potential for expansion in future
