NUM to march against Kimberley Mines sale

A month after South African diamond-mining company De Beers Consolidated Mines (DBCM) sold its Kimberley Mines, the National Union of Mineworkers’ (NUM’s) Kimberley Mines Branch demanded a review of the sale process, with a march planned against the mine sale on January 14. In December, DBCM sold its Northern Cape assets, including tailings dumps and a processing plant, for R102-million in cash to a 50.1:49.9 consortium comprising Kimberley-based surface diamond mining company Ekapa Mining and London-listed Petra Diamonds.
