Our Diamond Opportunities in the Central African Republic 

The western part of the country (Beaufort 5 area) contains the majority of alluvial diamond (blue) and gold (yellow) placers. All of these rich resources are exploited by artisanal miners. 80 % of mined stones have gemstone quality comparable to the best rates from Guinea.

Beaufort is currently negotiating with the CAR government regarding the implementation of a new central Institute of gold and diamonds (Institut de l’Or et des Diamants) at the capital Bangui to keep the chain of value entirely within the limits of the country for the export of exclusively the final products (rough planning and pre-cutting with diamonds and min 80 % gold doré). This institute shall be run as JV between the CAR state and Beaufort.  It will be equipped with state-of-the-art devices for diamond and gold treatment.
