Anglo announces latest De Beers’ rough diamond sales value

Anglo American plc announces the value of rough diamond sales (Global Sightholder Sales and Auctions) for De Beers’ sixth sales cycle of 2023, amounting to US$410 million.

The provisional rough diamond sales figure quoted for Cycle 6 represents the expected sales value for the period 10 and 25 July and remains subject to adjustment based on final completed sales.

Al Cook, CEO of De Beers, said: “In line with seasonal trends, rough diamond sales continued at a lower level during the sixth sales cycle of the year. Participants in the diamond industry’s midstream sector continue to take a cautious approach to purchases in light of ongoing macroeconomic challenges.”
