Petra Diamonds, mining in South Africa as well as Tanzania, conduct four underground* mining operations: the Cullinan Mine (originally the Premier mine – SA), the Finsch mine (SA), the Koffiefontein mine (SA), and the Williamson Mine (*underground and open cast, TZ). The annual caratage recovered from both the Williamson and Koffiefontein is less than 300,000 carats (avg. 2021/2), while the Cullinan and Finsch produce well over 1 million carats.
Williamson: 228,070 carats FY 2022 Production
Koffiefontein: 59,151 carats FY 2021 Production
Finsch: 1.3m carats FY 2022 Production
Cullinan: 1.6m carats FY 2022 Production
Petra had earlier estimated total recovery for this year at under 3 million carats, revised estimates place that number at close to 4 million. Fiscal year 2024 and 2025 estimates show continued growth expected.
