Diamond production forecast to slow

Diamonds may be forever, but they won’t always be easy to find.

In the latest Quarterly Carat diamond mining research note, Kieron Hodgson, Panmure Gordon’s Natural Resources – Mining and Commodities research analyst, forecasts global diamond production growth is set to moderate in 2019 before reducing through to 2021. This follows growth in global supply from 2009 to 2018.

The research results from an analysis of Panmure Gordon’s proprietary mine database, which looks at producing diamond mines, development assets and mothballed operations to gain a clear understanding of the supply side of the mined diamond industry.

The report also confirms ratings on diamond mining companies including Firestone Diamonds, Gem Diamonds, Lucapa Diamond Company and Petra Diamonds.
