Anglo American plc announces the value of rough diamond sales (Global Sightholder Sales and Auctions) for De Beers’ second sales cycle of 2020, amounting to $355 million.
Bruce Cleaver, CEO of De Beers Group, said: “Following an improvement in demand for rough diamonds during the first sales cycle of 2020, we recognised the impact of COVID-19 Coronavirus on customers focused on supplying the Chinese market and put in place additional targeted flexibility to enable customers to defer allocations of the relevant rough diamonds.”
