Namibia: Diamond Licenses Applications Open


Applications for new diamond licenses have recommenced following the review requirements and procedures by the Ministry of Mines and Energy.

"The Ministry of Mines and Energy is hereby informing the public that it will recommence to accept/receive new applications for licenses issued under the Diamond Act with effect from the date of this notice," the diamond commissioner Miina Gahutu said in a statement on Monday.
