Canada Diamond Mines Sparkle Print E-mail

Diamond mines in Canada are booming in the Northwest Territories.

The Geology news website reports that, "Throughout the 20th century most people would never have thought about Canada being an important producer of diamonds. [1] Their knowledge of diamonds was fixed on mining operations in Africa and diamond trading centers in Europe."

Thousands upon thousands of prospectors are moving to the region.

According to Geology, "All of this started to change in 1991 when two geologists, Chuck Fipke and Stewart Blusson, found evidence of diamond-bearing Kimberlite pipes about 200 miles north of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. One of these pipes would soon be developed by BHP Billiton into the EKATI Diamond Mine, which produced Canada's first commercial diamonds in 1998."

Canada has enjoyed tremendous success as a diamond producer.
