THE VOICE OF THE CANADIAN

MINING INDUSTRY SINCE 1935

De Beers Canada Inc.

Established in 1888, De Beers Group is the world’s leading diamond company with expertise in the exploration, mining and marketing of diamonds. Together with its joint venture partners, De Beers Group employs more than 20,000 people across the diamond pipeline and is the world’s largest diamond producer by value, with mining operations in Botswana, Canada, Namibia and South Africa. Innovation sits at the heart of the De Beers Group strategy as it develops its portfolio of brands, including De Beers Jewellers and Forevermark, and other pioneering solutions, such as recently launched diamond sourcing and traceability initiatives GemFair and Tracr. De Beers Group employees are committed to ‘Building Forever,’ a holistic and integrated approach for creating a better future – one that is fairer, safer, cleaner and healthier; where safety, human rights and ethical integrity continue to be paramount; and where communities thrive and the environment is protected. De Beers Group is a member of the Anglo American plc group.

De Beers has been operating in Canada since it carried out its first exploration program in 1961. The De Beers Victor kimberlite cluster discovery in 1987 by De Beers Exploration was the first economic diamond discovery in Canada, four years before the discoveries in the Northwest Territories. De Beers Group currently operates the joint venture Gahcho Kué Mine in the Northwest Territories, the Victor Mine in northern Ontario is in active closure, and Snap Lake Mine, Canada’s first fully underground diamond mine, is currently in extended care and maintenance. The company is also advancing the Chidliak Project on Baffin Island and has an active exploration program looking for new opportunities in Canada.
