ANJIN DECLARES ITSELF KPCS-COMPLIANT
13 September 2011

Chinese diamond miner Anjin Investments, which, along with Mbada Diamonds and Marange Resources, is licensed to operate in the Marange diamond area in partnership with the state parastatal Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC), says it is compliant with the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme's (KPCS) minimum requirements. However, unlike Mbada and Marange Resources, Anjin is not yet certified to export its diamonds.

The company, which has invested about US$310 million towards the establishment of open-cast mining operations in the area, told state-news agency New Ziana that it was "confident" that KP monitor Abbey Chikane, who is expected to visit Zimbabwe this week, would "certainly" give the miner approval to sell its rough

"It is very evident that we now comply with KPCS requirements. In fact, we are a step ahead. All the procedures comply with KP requirements," Anjin Vice-Chairperson Zhou Changhan told New Ziana.

According to Changhan, Global Diamond Valuators of Namibia (GDV) has been advising the miner on how to meet all KPCS requirements. The company also reportedly assisted Mbada Diamonds and Marange Resources on KPCS-compliance issues, the news source adds.

Neither Chikane nor any other KPCS representative has yet made an official statement regarding Anjin's compliance with the KPCS mininum requirements.
