Angola tem mil milhões de carats de diamantes
Angola tem mil milhões de carats de diamantes, dos quais mais de 950 milhões constituídos por kimberlites e pelo menos 50 milhões em aluviões, anunciou recentemente em Luanda um director da Unidade de Prospecção Geológica do grupo russo Alrosa.
Lido na newsletter da IDMA (International Diamond Manufacturers Association):
Victor Ustinov also said that that number could reach 1.5 billion carats if additional studies were carried out to learn more about the potential of the country. The study, conducted by Angolan and Russian geologists, has allowed Angola's territory to be divided into four areas with diamond potential areas, which were characterized as having high potential, likely potential, without potential and moving bands, according to Angolan news agency Angop. Geologists have concluded that most of the kimberlites discovered in the country are located in northeastern Angola and belong to an area called "open territories," where they are exposed to the air and are visible.
