DIAMOND-PROCESSING PLANT COMING

DIAMOND-PROCESSING PLANT COMING

A LOCAL entrepreneur has set aside over US$3.2 million for a diamond-processing plant that will start operating this month-end and will target producing between 15,000 and 25,000 carats in the first two to three years. The project is expected to create 300 jobs directly and indirectly during the production capacity. Mutinta Jewellery chief executive officer Msafiri Sinkala said the firm has started partial operations and training workers. “We are likely to start full operations in the next two weeks as we put things in place. We want Zambia to be the market place for diamonds and jewellery in the region as well as empower local small-scale miners by providing market for them,” Mr Sinkala said in an interview on Tuesday.
