Rio Tinto’s diamonds division will ramp up exploration as it seeks to replace the ageing Argyle and Diavik mines. Rio CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques says the company will consider acquisitions in the sector, but its preferred option is to discover a new diamond deposit. He is optimistic that Rio can establish another diamond mine in Australia, and he would particularly like to find a new pink diamond mine, given the rarity of these diamonds and the premium prices they fetch.
