RESOURCES SA ON NEWS DE BEERS CONSIDERING COURT ACTION
TO SET ASIDE ST AUGUSTINES PROSPECTING RIGHT
The news relayed to us by the DFA that De Beers is considering court action to
set aside the St Augustines Mine Prospecting Right, if true, would be tragic
for mineral and economic development in the Kimberley Area.
St Augustines Mine is as much part of Kimberley`s history as the Big Hole. If
it still contains a viable resource, it would be grossly unfair to deny the
modern residents of the City the benefits of its re-development especially
since historic records show that the diamonds found in St Augustines`s appear
to have been indistinguishable from those yielded by the western section of
the Big Hole and that the two Mines are probably located on the same volcanic
Vecto Trade and Tawana Resources have approached all stakeholders, including
De Beers, involved in the development of the Big Hole Precinct as a tourist
centre and diamond hub and assured them of our support. We genuinely believe
that our proposed activities will enhance this development. We will bring
diamond exploration and hopefully diamond production, cutting, polishing and
distribution into the area making it a unique diamond hub with global tourist
and business appeal.
