Alluvial diamond mine expansion, Smoke Creek

Proposal description: 

The proposal is for the mining and processing of approximately 12 million tonnes of alluvial gravels extending for a distance of 2.5km downstream beyond current mining operations in Smoke Creek. The company proposes to begin mining later in 1991 and the programme is expected to take five years to complete. Additional areas under consideration downstream pending feasibility studies will be the subject of later referrals if mining is proposed.
