An abandoned diamond mine (on a kimberlite pipe) featuring an open pit several hundred meters deep.
Discovered in 1955, the open-pit mining closed in 2001.
By 1999, the project operated exclusively as an underground mine.
Life of mine – up to 2043 at the design capacity of 1 million tons of ore per year; current annual capacity of the mine is 500 thousand tons of ore.
