Namibia's underwater diamond harvest
 
01:35
In the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Namibia, you will find some of the world’s most valuable diamonds scattered like lost change. The discovery of such gems has sparked a revolution in one of the world’s most storied industries for the precious stones buried just under the seafloor. "Our ground operations are at a turning point. We believe that diamond mining on earth is not finished, but it will require very large investments," said Daniel Kali, De Beers Namibia resident director.

Namibian Diamonds from Precious Earth Jewelry
 
07:02
When people think of diamonds poverty is not usually the first think that comes to mind. The reality is diamonds are mined in some of the poorest countries on earth. One might think the answer would be simply stop buying diamonds from continents like Africa based on the injustices of the past (and unfortunately ongoing in Zimbabwe) but this would only make things worse for those struggling to survive. At Precious Earth we believe the answer is to responsibly harness the economical potential of traceable diamonds and empower the local people through jobs and education in the territories, like Namibia, where diamonds are mined. Namibia Diamonds are the only diamonds that feature the Team Namibia* logo and come with a validation certificate. This assures you that your diamond is a natural, ethically sourced diamond that has been polished in the Namibian Diamond factory. We hold high hopes that this Namibian diamond cutting factory will soon create thousands of jobs and empower a generation of people. *Team Namibia is a monitoring body that endorses Namibian companies that offer socially responsible products and services. Namibian Diamonds follow a strict chain of warranties and are in full compliance with the Kimberely Process. Video Courtesy of Namibian Diamonds. Thanks to Team Namibia and all others who produced this beautiful education piece.

The Namibia Diamond Consumer Confidence awareness campaign was officially launched by the Hounourable Erkki Nghimtina, Minister of Mines and Energy yesterday. The Project is an effort by the diamond industry to raise awareness on the issues of conflict diamonds and to tell the story of the goods that diamonds do for Namibia. Minister Nghimtina said: "It goes without saying that the mining industry in Namibia has been, since the turn of the century, one of the corner stones of the economy." According to the Minister, Namibia is well known for gem quality diamonds as well as a wide range of other minerals. "In contributing approximately 12.5% to the GDP, mining continues to be an important generator of export and foreign exchange, and acts as a catalyst towards the provision and extension of infrastructures within the country. In Namibia, diamonds account for more than 40% of our country's export revenue, 7% of the government revenue and more than 10% of GDP," he said. The occasion was attended by dignitaries from the embassies of Russia, Brazil, UK and industry leaders in the diamond fraternity. During his speech, the Minister made it clear that although Namibia has never been involved in conflict diamonds, it does not mean that the country should turn a blind eye to the dangers posed by smuggling, illicit diamond dealings and other related activities. Conflict diamonds is the term used to describe diamonds which are illegally traded to fund conflicts. The United Nations defines conflict diamonds as '....diamonds that originate from areas controlled by forces or factions opposed to legitimate and internationally recognized governments, and are used to fund military action in opposition to those governments, or in contravention of the decisions of the security council.' In recent times, conflicts in some poorest parts of Africa have often focused on rebels controlling their country's natural resources and assets; for example, oil, wood, minerals and also diamonds to fund their activities. The Minister also made reference to a blockbuster Hollywood movie called "Blood Diamond" starring famous actor Leanardo DiCaprio, that is due for release in mid December in the US. The film is fictional and is set against the backdrop of conflict and war during the civil war Sierra Leone in the 1990's. It dramatizes the involvement of the diamond industry in the illicit trade of conflict diamonds whilst showing the use of child soldiers, slave labour, the brutality of the rebels and realities of alluvial digging. According to the Minister, Namibia and the diamond industry in general sees the release of this movie as an opportunity to talk about the steps that has so far been taken to prevent illegal trade in conflict diamonds such as the countries participation in the Kimberley Process and any further debate stimulated by the film. The Minister however cautioned that it was important that the world does not forget that diamonds are a hugely important natural resource for Southern Africa and Namibia. Income from diamonds will make it possible for Namibia to meet the objectives of Vision 2030 through supporting the economy, health, education and employment sectors, diamonds are helping to transform the economy and the lives of Namibian people for the better. In conclusion the Minister assured the audience that Namibians can rest assured that 99.8% of diamonds are certified conflict free and they must have trust in the integrity of diamonds and in the practices of the industry.

Diamonds Namibia or as Trump calls it Nambia, Diamonds International introduces film about Namibia, The Shining Diamond of Africa. Namibia is known as one of the youngest nations globally – obtaining its independence from South Africa in 1990. Described as one of the cleanest cities worldwide and influenced by numerous cultures, Namibia was an underrated country… until now. Namibia's economy depends on four cornerstones, specifically mining - contributing 3 billion USD to the diamond industry alone! Almod Namibia Ltd.'s Impact Diamonds International not only created jobs, but also helped support other businesses such as transportation, catering, and banks, which allowed social classes to develop economically and academically. Some would even consider that DI put Namibia on the map by promoting the "Shining Diamond of Africa", the Crown of Light, throughout its other stores located in over 20 countries. This and other factors, including passion and dedication, helped double the tourism business in Namibia.

Namibia Joins The Rest Of The World In Representing Women In Mining. By: Isai Sipunga
 
03:16
A first of its kind, Women in Mining Association of Namibia was recently launched in the capital. WiMAN is one of many organizations in Africa, which strives to represent women in the mining industry. For many years, the mining industry has always been dominated by men. As the world began to move towards modern times, positive steps to help intergrade women into the industry were taken. Today, more and more women are joining the mining industry, but they still feel under-represented, which is why the Women In Mining Association of Namibia (WiMAN) was launched in Windhoek recently. The organization is aiming at representing women in mining all over Namibia. Awases added that despite the challenges that await WIMAN, they will try to focus on assisting the mining industry in both attracting and retaining as many local women in the industry as possible. The organisation aims to do this by rewriting the policies and processes that are currently in place in the mining industry. According to Awases, the equipment and clothing that are used in mines are only suitable for men, making it uncomfortable for women to use. Senior Geologist at Debmarine Namibia, Elina Amutenya, said she was one of the first female employees to work alongside 70 men at the diamond mining company. She added that things were not so easy for her as she tried very hard to fit in. The Women in Mining Association of Namibia is calling on women in the mining industry to come together and support the movement.

IGC to Showcase Opportunities for Namibian Gemstones  . By: Isai Sipunga

Namibia will be hosting the 35th International Gemmological Conference (IGC) from the 8th to the 19th of October, this year. Windhoek has been identified by the Namibian Industry Stakeholders as a unique opportunity to showcase skills, products and craftsmanship. This event will only be open to invited guests, observers and members of the Jewellers Association of Namibia, (JASSONA). During a media briefing held in Windhoek, Andreas Palfi from JASSONA said small scale miners are working extremely hard and in extreme conditions to often get these gems and are then sold to international buyers immediately, instead of holding onto it as Government has no interest in buying from them. He however stressed that if Government supports these miners both parties will be able to benefit through this. Chairperson of JASSONA, Rolf Adrian said there are no gemstone shops or polishers in Windhoek and this is because approximately 90% of raw material leaves the country and are exhibited at some of the biggest mineral conferences in the world. He said the aim of the IGC will be to showcase what Namibian jewellers can do with the gemstones if they weren't exported. JASSONA will also be hosting a contest of jewellery made in Namibia themed "Namibian Coloured Gemstone Jewellery". The winners of the competition will be judged by the public during a Namibian Gemstone & Jewellery showcase event at the Safari Hotel and Conference centre on the 12th and 13th of October, this year.

Namibia & the Skeleton Coast Travel, Tours, Vacation HD Namibia, Skeleton Coast http://youtu.be/jDM_n18lfsw Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Namibia is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. It shares land borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Although it does not border with Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of riverbed (essentially the Zambia/Botswana border) separates them at their closest points. It gained independence from South Africa on 21 March 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia is a member state of the United Nations (UN), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Commonwealth of Nations. The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, and Namaqua, and since about the 14th century AD by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion. Most of the territory became a German Imperial protectorate in 1884 and remained a German colony until the end of World War I. In 1920, the League of Nations mandated the country to South Africa, which imposed its laws and, from 1948, its apartheid policy. The port of Walvis Bay and the offshore Penguin Islands had been annexed by the Cape Colony under the British crown by 1878 and had become an integral part of the new Union of South Africa at its creation in 1910. Uprisings and demands by African leaders led the UN to assume direct responsibility over the territory. It recognised the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) as the official representative of the Namibian people in 1973. Namibia, however, remained under South African administration during this time as South-West Africa. Following internal violence, South Africa installed an interim administration in Namibia in 1985. Namibia obtained full independence from South Africa in 1990, with the exception of Walvis Bay and the Penguin Islands, which remained under South African control until 1994. Namibia has a population of 2.1 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry -- including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals -- form the backbone of Namibia's economy. Given the presence of the arid Namib Desert, it is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Namibia enjoys high political, economic and social stability. History of Namibia The name of the country is derived from the Namib Desert, considered to be the oldest desert in the world.[5] Before its independence in 1990, the area was known first as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika), then as South-West Africa, reflecting the colonial occupation by the Germans and the South Africans (technically on behalf of the British crown reflecting South Africa's dominion status within the British Empire). Pre-colonial period The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, Nama, and since about the 14th century AD, by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion from central Africa. From the late 18th century onwards, Orlam clans from the Cape Colony crossed the Orange River and moved into the area that today is southern Namibia.[6] Their encounters with the nomadic Nama tribes were largely peaceful. The missionaries accompanying the Orlams were well received by them,[7] the right to use waterholes and grazing was granted against an annual payment.[8] On their way further northwards, however, the Orlams encountered clans of the Herero tribe at Windhoek, Gobabis, and Okahandja which were less accommodating. The Nama-Herero War broke out in 1880, with hostilities ebbing only when Imperial Germany deployed troops to the contested places and cemented the status quo between Nama, Orlams, and Herero. The first Europeans to disembark and explore the region were the Portuguese navigators Diogo Cão in 1485 and Bartolomeu Dias in 1486; still the region was not claimed by the Portuguese crown. However, like most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia was not extensively explored by Europeans until the 19th century, when traders and settlers arrived, principally from Germany and Sweden. In the late 19th century Dorsland trekkers crossed the area on their way from the Transvaal to Angola. Some of them settled in Namibia instead of continuing their journey, even more returned to South-West African territory after the Portuguese tried to convert them to Catholicism and forbade their language at schools. ================= Travel Namibia, Travel Skeleton Coast, Africa's Last Wilderness, Tours Namibia, Tours Skeleton Coas, Vacation Namibia, Vacation Skeleton Coas, Tourism Namibia, Tourism Skeleton Coas, Overseas Adventure Travel, Windhoek, Sossusvlei Dunes, Swakopmund, Damaraland, Etosha National Park

Namibia invites Turkish companies to the diamond industry Namibia's Diamond Trading Company CEO, Ndjaba, called on Turkish investors to invest in Namibia by exploring opportunities in diamonds and other sectors. Namibia Diamond Trading Company (NDTC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sihaleni Ndjaba called on Turkish investors to invest in Namibia by exploring opportunities in diamonds and other sectors in this country. Ndjaba told AA correspondent on investment opportunities by evaluating the mineral and diamond resources of Namibia, located on the southwest of Africa. Ndjaba noted that NDTC's main responsibility is to classify the diamonds deriving from Namdeb and distribute them to 11 registered diamond processing companies in the country, he noted that the development and upgrading of the diamond manufacturing sector in Namibia is also a task. Ndjaba said that they are exporting diamonds from the sea in Namibia and that they are a registered Turkish company that is engaged in diamond cutting, processing and polishing in the country and that this company has given them the skills of the field by employing Namibian young people. Ndjaba, who informed NDTC that he is half-partner with the South African-based diamond company De Beers, said: "After Namibia gained independence in 1990, the Namibian government bought a 50 percent stake in De Beers mining operations in 1990. We will be engaged in the diamond cutting and polishing business, Processes and procedures.Possible investors in Turkey should come to Namibia and explore investment opportunities in diamonds and other sectors and invest here.Namibia is also an ideal country for a peaceful investment with very good telecommunication, bank and road infrastructure. I therefore invite our Turkish friends here to explore and invest in investment opportunities. " Ndjaba, regarding security prejudices against Africa, said, "People see Africa as a country, but Europe is a continent, Africa is a continent consisting of 54 countries, Today there are places and places in Europe that are not secure. We can say 'Europe is a bad place without security' Namibia is a safe country and many people in Europe are finding a safer life in Namibia than in their own country. . "Elmasa will add value, we want to export" The Namibia Diamond Commissioner and Namdia's Senior Manager Namdia Kennedy Hamutanada, through Namdia, reported that they sold 15 percent of the diamonds in the international market, thus following the world's diamond demand and market prices. Hamutiye stated that the company has 11 factories in Israel, Belgium, USA, India and Turkey in the field of cutting and processing diamonds in the country and stated that the Turkish company has been teaching this profession to Namibian young people for 17 years and has transferred many technologies to the diamond sector in the country. Claiming that the world's best quality diamonds were produced in Namibia, Hamutene said: "We want to export the raw diamonds we are currently exporting as raw, we will process them, add value and prepare them for export with Namibia's own diamond brand, so we need companies that will cut off, shine, When I go to Turkey, I see how skilled they are in gold and diamond processing.Turkish business people can come to Namibia to do jewelery business, to use all the raw materials we have and to educate young Namibians in manufacturing, production and processing in this sector. " Hamutane pointed out that Namibia was also very close to the other gold and diamond producing countries in the region.

The remote town of Oranjemund, which lies in a diamond-mining area called the Sperrgebiet, or "prohibited area" in German, held celebrations this month to declare an end to its isolation from the rest of the country. The Namibia Press Agency said a new road has opened between the Namibian town of Rosh Pinah and Oranjemund, ending a decades-long system whereby travelers had to get security clearance before entering the Sperrgebiet. Namdeb, a joint venture between Namibia and the De Beers company, operates in the Oranjemund area. Diamond-mining on land is expected to wind down in coming years, while more focus is being placed on offshore mining operations.

The first Europeans to disembark and explore the region were the Portuguese navigators Diogo Cão in 1485 and Bartolomeu Dias in 1486; still the region was not claimed by the Portuguese crown. However, like most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia was not extensively explored by Europeans until the 19th century, when traders and settlers arrived, principally from Germany and Sweden. In the late 19th century Dorsland trekkers crossed the area on their way from the Transvaal to Angola. Some of them settled in Namibia instead of continuing their journey. Others returned to South-West African territory after the Portuguese tried to convert them to Catholicism and forbade their language at schools. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namibia
