Rubies from Mozambique – Field report published by GIA

I have had some involvement with mineral projects in Mozambique; I follow with attention news, especially on tantalum, diamonds – Diamonds discovered in Mozambique – Mustang Resources’ Save Project, coal – and rubies – Montepuez’ GEMFIELDS rubi mine – newest updates on the world’s single largest ruby and corundum deposit.

I have just came across an excellent GIA field report on the Mozambican Montepuez ruby mine, originally published at the 2015 Spring issue of GEMS & GEMOLOGY.

Enjoy.

Montepuez’ GEMFIELDS rubi mine – newest updates on the world’s single largest ruby and corundum deposit

Discovered in 2009, Montepuez (Mozambique) is the world’s single largest ruby and corundum deposit. GEMFIELDS acquired a 75% interest in the concession in June 2011 from Mwiriti Lda. Montepuez Ruby Mining Lda (“MRM”) is the project operator and a joint venture between Gemfields and Mwiriti Lda. GEMFIEDLS released two documents on Montepuez by SRK Consulting.

According to the Reserves and Resources presentation:

  • 16 million carats (“mct”) produced to date.
  • To date a total of USD55 million has been invested , generating current total revenue of USD122 million.
