Koidu Kimberlite Project Koidu Limited

The US$150 million Expansion Project involves a five-year open pit mining phase of the two kimberlite pipes, transitioning to a 12-year underground mining operation on both pipes, as well as introducing a second underground mining operation in parallel to extract the kimberlite dykes and blows.

Diamond Prospecting and Mining

The kimberlite is extracted in enormous quantities using huge trucks and giant steam shovels; the pipe is mined from the surface as an open pit. When it gets too deep, underground mining may begin. Because of the huge quantities of rock involved, the mining is highly mechanized.

Kimbundu Mining CC diamond mining angola huambo

Pipe mining has two forms: open-pit diamond mining and underground diamond mining. Open-pit diamond mining is used closer to the earth’s surface, as miners remove the layers of sand and rock just above the kimberlite rocks. In contrast, underground mining requires the creation of two parallel and vertically connected tunnels where miners in

Open-pit Mining Mining North Works

To safely open-pit mine the kimberlite, water retention structures (dikes) were constructed in the lake to hold back the lake waters during mining. The main cost advantage of open-pit mining is that it allows mining with more efficient larger equipment. This means faster production and mining of lower grades of ore is possible.
