Research-based rehabilitation

At Gem Diamonds, we aim to restore the land we use as closely as possible to its pre-mining condition. Through ongoing and extensive research and planning, we are constantly improving our understanding of rehabilitation methodologies that will help us attain our goals. During 2014, Letšeng continued with extensive concurrent rehabilitation trials, which were initiated in 2012, in order to determine the feasibility and success of planned rehabilitation strategies. These trials, which are run on four different sites with differing combinations of soils, tailings and vegetation, assist with refining the rehabilitation and closure plans to ensure more effective results.
