Bonas-Couzyn NV and International Mining and Dredging Holdings (Pty) Ltd (IMDH) have announced that from February onwards, they will be offering IMDH’s Namibian marine-mined rough diamonds from the Diamond Fields licence area, for auction sale in Bonas-Couzyn’s Antwerp offices.
IMDH engages in offshore exploration, dredging and marine mining activities as well as specialised vessel and tool design. Their Namibian subsidiary, Nutam Operations (Pty) Ltd, has been contracted by license holder Diamond Fields (Namibia) (Pty) Ltd. to undertake mining operations within their ML111 offshore Namibian mining license and to sell the production recovered.
The first sale from IMDH brings to market approximately 47,000 carats of original marine goods of gem quality, mined by the specialist mining vessel, the Ya Toivo.
IMDH will be holding regular ROM production tenders with Bonas-Couzyn in Antwerp throughout 2019.
The viewings for the first sale are scheduled to take place by appointment only from February 11 to 15 in Bonas Couzyn’s office in the Diamantclub Building. The sale will close on February 18.
