Letlhakane, a village in the central district of Botswana south of Mmatshumo, is within 15 to 20km of four of Botswana’s most profitable diamond mines.

Three of the mines – Letlhakane Mine in the south-east, Orapa in the north-west and Damtshaa in the north – are operated by Debswana, a company jointly-owned by the Botswanan government and De Beers, one of the biggest diamond-mining companies in the world.

The fourth mine, Karowe Diamond Mine, located south-west of Letlhakane, is operated by Boteti Mining, which is owned by Canada’s Lucara Diamonds.

Botswana is the world’s largest producer of diamonds and, by carefully managing their diamond reserves, Botswana has managed to become one of the most stable and wealthiest countries, especially in terms of human development and quality of life, in
sub-Saharan Africa.
