Majwe scoops P15.7bn Jwaneng Mine contract


Majwe Mining has been awarded a P15.7 billion contract to expand Jwaneng Mine pit, in a project that is expected to create 1,000 jobs at its peak.

Known as Cut 9, the project will deepen the Jwaneng Mine pit to 830 metres from the current 650 metres, making it one of the world's deepest open pit diamond mines. The project will extend the life of Mine to 2035, and is expected to yield an estimated 53 million carats of rough diamonds from 44 million tonnes of treated material. 

Majwe Mining, a joint venture between Bothakga Burrow Botswana and Thiess Botswana, was previously contracted for the P24bn Cut 8 project, where ore mining began three years ago. Majwe Mining handed over the Cut 8 project to Debswana late last year.
