De Beers Rough Diamond Move

Mineworkers stand near a digger on diamond-bearing kimberlite rock at the base of the Jwaneng mine, operated by the Debswana Diamond Co., a joint venture between De Beers and Botswana's government, in Jwaneng, Botswana, on Oct. 24, 2012. De Beers, the biggest diamond producer by revenue, is moving the sorting and trading of rough stones to Botswana from London to secure access to the world's largest supplier of diamonds by value, and challenge Antwerp's dominance as the world's biggest trading hub for rough diamonds.
