@nicholaslepan De Beers is shelving immediate plans to study an expansion project at a remote northern Ontario diamond mine after failing to get support from a neighboring aboriginal community, a “disappointing” setback for the world’s top diamond producer, the mine’s manager said. The isolated Victor mine in the James Bay lowlands produces some 600 carats of diamonds annually and is scheduled to stop production in late 2018 and close in early 2019. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/lacking-local-support-de-beers-shelves-ontario-diamond-mine-expansion/article33913435/ #diamonds

@nicholaslepan Hate to bare bad news. If you buy a diamond, you’ve been suckered into paying a huge premium by one of the most successful cartels that has ever existed, which has combined a strategy of first creating an artificial scarcity of diamonds, and then supplementing that market manipulation with the most successful advertising and marketing scam in history. http://www.aei.org/publication/6m-americans-may-get-engaged-today-with-a-diamond-ring-that-costs-5k-including-a-huge-premium-for-false-scarcity/? #diamonds

@MiningBookGuy The new explorers: Where the mining industry is looking for the next supply of earth's riches http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/03/11/new-explorers-mining-industry-looking-next-supply-earths-riches/ (h/t @pauljohnson9691) #exploration #explorers #gold #diamonds #copper #brownfields #greenfields #geopolitics Great article, worth subscribing for free to see the whole thing. Here are some quotes: [For Skinner, searching for a new diamond mine is akin to looking for a microscopic needle in a haystack. Of the 7,000 #diamond deposits identified worldwide in history, only 60 have been economically viable. Of those, just seven are top “tier-1” mines.] ... [Tyler says: “It’s been a long time since anyone found a big #copper or #diamond deposit. Long term, there will be a gap in #supply.”] .. [McIntosh claims that Rio’s success rate is one find in 150 targets, compared with an industry average of one in 1,000 or more. He recalls being part of a team that found a #gold deposit in Papua New Guinea: “It’s very rare to be associated with a #discovery like that. That was the defining moment of my career.”]

@JamesKwantes Check out the waterfall slide $DDC took beginning in mid-February, when it was trading for $13.50 Canadian (Washington's takeover offer is for US$13.50) and declined for several sessions in a row. Retail investors tend to shrug at #diamonds but this hostile bid shows a continuing interest in diamonds from wealthy and successful groups -- now the Washingtons but also Lukas Lundin, Anglo-American, renewed interest from Rio, etc -- because the business is very profitable. Wouldn't be surprised to see many of the diamond pubcos catch a bid Monday, there aren't a lot of them. $NAR for example has a JV with $DDC in NWT

@ekim No doubt in my mind that the 'disgruntled' group of shareholders are involved at some level with this buy out offer from this private North American entity. Whether it was determining a fair price or being a firm yes on the deal to entice other investors to follow the herd. $DDC #diamonds

@ekim What are the odds that $DDC threw a dart at $KDI to try and swat this whole aggressive takeover tactic? I would say very low...but the coincidence of an after hours news release on Friday night by $KDI followed by these news releases on a Sunday? Just one thought. #diamonds

@0Kib #Diamonds are one of the biggest scams in the history of mining. There's too much diamond in the world. All the scarcity and perceived value is the making of an astute DeBeers founding family who spent $100m+ on advertising the rock as the symbol of love every year for decades while hoarding diamonds away. The opacity in diamond pricing will sooner or later go away with technology. Diamond can be a trade not an investment.

@JamesKwantes Re De Beers jewelry arm, there is sure a lot of activity in the #diamonds sector of late as well as interest from majors. Also a major focus of the latest Resource Opportunities which went out early this morning. Diamonds one of the "empty rooms" at an otherwise bullish PDAC. Opportunity IMO $DDC $RIO

@JamesKwantes On the Sierra Leone diamond, it's a fascinating story but I don't think that's a US$50-million diamond. Time will tell #diamonds

@JamesKwantes Would sure be nice to see $DDC remain in Canadian hands, given the historic assets and the way in which Canada helped bust up the De Beers cartel with the 1990s discoveries that laid the foundation for an industry #diamonds

@ekim @allan here is the curve -- http://cdn.ceo.ca/1cdlmrn-video_screenshot_NAR.png+ $NAR It shows the first half of the curve and the only thing you can take from it is a lot flatter then the regularly stones in the population. If it stays flat..you could see some larger fancy yellows. If it drops off...then not. #diamonds
