According to statistics revealed by Cameroon’s Minister of Industry, Mining and Technological Development, since entering the Kimberly Process on August 14, 2012, the country has exported a little over 2414 carats in diamonds.

Diamond exports which have been handled by the Korean company, C&K Mining, which holds the permit to exploit the Mobilong deposit which is considered to be one of the largest in the world, brought 282 million F. CFA or 12.5% into the State’s coffers. According to results of a census conducted in July 2013 in the East region by the National Permanent Secretariat of the Kimberly Process, there are seven small-scale diamond mining zones in which 238 small-scale workers operate.

The Permanent Secretariat also revealed that small-scale diamond production in Cameroon is currently estimated to be approximately 5,000 carats per annum.
