ZIM COURT RULES AGAINST MBADA BID TO RETURN SECURITY OFFICERS TO CHIADZWA DIAMOND FIELDS
25 June 2017
Zimbabwe's High Court has issued a ruling against Mbada Diamonds' majority shareholder Grandwell Holdings, who sought the court's permission to return the company's security officers to the Chiadzwa diamond fields, reports Zimbabwe's Financial Gazette.

The court appeal was intended to allow the company to secure ore that had been mined by Mbada before the claims were taken over by State firm, the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Mining Company (ZCDC). The security officers were reportedly ejected from Mbada's diamond claims after the government seized the concessions last year.

According to the news source, the company also wanted ZCDC to stop extracting gems on claims previously controlled by Mbada Diamonds, although ZCDC argued that it had been granted permission to mine by government.

The ZCDC had also reportedly approached the High Court seeking the removal of Mbada Diamonds from Chiadzwa, arguing that it has a special grant from the Ministry of Mines and Mining Development to do mining operations in the disputed claims.

The ZCDC says it has been unable to carry out its operations because Mbada Diamonds had continued to occupy part of the claims.

Mbada continues to dispute the legality of the "special mining grant" issued by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Mines, arguing that it "constituted an element of the unlawful spoliation", reports the news source.
