About Petra Diamonds Limited

Petra  Diamonds  is  a  leading  independent  diamond  mining  group  and   an 
increasingly important supplier of rough diamonds to the international market.
The Company has  interests in  eight producing  mines: seven  in South  Africa 
(Finsch, Cullinan, Koffiefontein, Kimberley  Underground, Helam, Sedibeng  and 
Star) and  one in  Tanzania  (Williamson). It  also maintains  an  exploration 
programme in Botswana.



The Company has recently commenced a disposal process in respect of the Helam,
Sedibeng and Star mines (the Fissure Mines),  which are no longer core to  the 
Group's portfolio.



Petra offers an exceptional growth profile, with a core objective to  steadily 
increase annual production to  5 million carats  by FY 2019.  The Group has  a 
major resource base in excess of 300 million carats.



Petra conducts all operations according  to the highest ethical standards  and 
will only operate  in countries which  are members of  the Kimberley  Process. 
Petra is quoted with a premium listing on the Main Market of the London  Stock 
Exchange under the ticker 'PDL' and is a member of the FTSE 250.
