Cullinan mine is owned by Petra Diamonds and is situated in the Gauteng province of South Africa. It is located about 40km east of Pretoria.
In 1905, the largest rough gem diamond was found in Cullinan. The discovery of the diamond – which was 3 106 carats – put Cullinan mine on the global map as a renowned source of large, high-quality gem diamonds. This includes type II stones and is a source of very rare blue diamonds.
The mine has an expected life of mine of about 50 years. Cullinan contains a world-class diamond resource of 194 metric carats (Mcts). The mine has undertaken an expansion programme that is expected to increase annual production from 0.7Mcts in 2016, to 2.2Mcts in 2019.
