Great topic, nice to get some figures and put the whole mining process in perspective. Many people like myself were living on a diamond mine, but never knew what the takings/productivity of the mine actually was/is.

Only 3 plant left and still going strong.... All of 1 & 2 Plant have been removed....and most of 4 plant...  PTF plant, the most Southern plant commissioned around 1990 is currently being deconstructed......
