Zim govt probes De Beers

Johannesburg - The Zimbabwean government is investigating the operations of diamond company De Beers in Chiadzwa some years back amid fears the company could have looted gems worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Zimbabwe's Herald Online reported on Thursday.

De Beers spent eight years exploring diamonds at the fields, but later claimed that it failed to get anything meaningful.

These are the same fields that Mbada, Marange Resources and Anjin Investment are operating on viably today and extracting millions of carats, the report said.

Mines and Mining Development Deputy Minister Gift Chimanikire on Wednesday confirmed a probe was already underway.

"We have requested a full report on De Beers and their operations from our officers," Chimanikire said.
