DIAMOND MINE IN BOTSWANA


2020 | Botswana

Terravox Global Ltd was invited to test its MMS technology at the Jwaneng mine in Botswana under the subcontract with the Debswana Diamond Company (Pty) Ltd. (a joint venture between DeBeers and the Government of the Republic of Botswana). 

The results  fully confirmed the effectiveness of the MMS technology and gave additional results to the data of traditional methods, indicating the presence of kimberlite pipes that had not been detected earlier. This was further confirmed by drilling. 

The MMS made it possible to complete the work planned for 5 years in 6 months under the conditions of the pandemic, and to reduce the planned exploration drilling work by 50%. 

In addition, in the course of the measurement method MMP was detected and confirmed by the drilling of groundwater lens.

it was decided to change the approach to exploration - exploration drilling should be preceded by MMS.
