Production at Rio Tinto’s iconic Argyle diamond mine in Western Australia has formally ended after 37 years. More than 865 million carats of rough diamonds were produced at Argyle during its mine life, while it has accounted for about 95 per cent of global supply of pink diamonds. The mine also ended the De Beers diamond monopoly. It is expected to take about five years to close down the Argyle mine and rehabilitate the site.
