Diamond Exploration Begins In Masvingo

Government yesterday commissioned the Airborne Mineral Exploration project in Chivi and Mwenezi districts in Masvingo Province to establish the extent of diamond deposit in the area. It is believed the two districts are rich in kimberlites.

Addressing guests during the commissioning of the exploration project at Buffalo Range Airport yesterday, Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Ezra Chadzamira said the commissioning of the diamond exploration project was key to the province’s quest to create employment.

The diamond exploration covers Ngundu, Mwenezi and Rutenga and will focus on conglomerate, alluvial and kimberlites. Nicholas Taruvinga, the Managing Director of AeroSurv, which partnered Xcalibur Airborne Geophysics of South Africa for the aeromagnetic surveying of diamond deposits in Mwenezi and Chiredzi said the companies collect data from the surface and the soils and rocks beneath.
