"Emerald mining in Zambia" by GIA
With that new GIA Field video you will be taken with the GIA Field Expedition (FE56) that took place in September 2014 in Zambia. You will surely feel the lure of emerald—central Africa’s green treasure—in this short GIA video. First, you’ll visit the Musakashi, Zambia, emerald mining area where mining is carried out by local people with simple hand tools. Next, you’ll travel with Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu and the GIA team to Zambia’s Kafubu area, one of Africa’s oldest gem-mining areas. “There are maybe 400 mines, and maybe less than 10 are active,” says Pardieu. While there, you’ll witness several active emerald mines. Some are very small-scale and operated by local people, while some, like the MIKU and the KAGEM mines, are very large. The latter is probably the largest colored gemstone mining pit in the world. In this video, you’ll view the entire KAGEM operation—a modern, highly sophisticated mechanized pit mine. As you stand on the rim of the pit, a ripple of explosions blasts ore for processing. You will witness workers recovering emeralds from the pit. You’ll also venture underground into Gemfields’ exploratory underground workings and see the firm’s secure processing and sorting facility. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel, Field Gemologist Andy Lucas, Gems & Gemology Technical Editor Dr. Tao Hsu, and Field Gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.
Afghanistan's Secret Billion Dollar Emerald Mines
Hidden Gems: After suffering the Soviets, the Taliban, and the War on Terror, Afghanistan has had its share of turmoil; but can 1,000 billion dollars worth of emeralds lift Afghanistan out of poverty?

He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Gemfields PLC boss hopes to lift Kagem ouput to 40mln carats
Gemfields PLC (LON:GEM) chief executive Ian Harebottle said he was "very pleased" at the firm's record operational year at its two mines - the Kagem emerald mine in Zambia and Montepuez, its ruby mine in Mozambique. Revenues for the 12 months to June 30 rose 13% to US$193.1mln, while over the last five years, the group has generated a 380% increase in revenues. The company boss said he saw a lot of potential for growing supply, demand and pricing for the gem stone business. The focus on both mines will be now to increase proiduction while reducing costs. At Kagem, the firm aims to lift production over the next three to four years to possibly just over 40mln carats from the current 30mln. Montepuez, meanwhile, is very exciting and has the potential to supply 70% of the ruby market, he added.

Copper mines in Zambia - Straight through Africa
Trade is better than aid for Africa. They say. In a journey through copper thieves and mine barons in the north of Zambia, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind that slogan. From a distance they look like ants, the hundreds of men digging holes in the rubble slopes of an old copper mine in Zambia. They are looking for copper ore in the walls of the enormous pit, without wearing helmets and without reinforcing the walls of their caves. Life-threatening, of course. But they find enough to live on. Is it legal, Bram asks. They laugh about it. No of course not. But the Chinese buyer does not really ask where they get their ore from. You just have to leave when the guards of the mine come. How different is it in a huge copper mine in full operation. Huge machines drive off and on. Sirens sound regularly, followed by explosions. Here, 300,000 tons of stone are moved every day, and the copper ore from it yields a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. But it is a foreign company that raises that money. And if the productivity gets too low after about twenty years, the investors will move on. From the air it is easy to see how far-reaching it all is. The mine takes big chores out of the country and turns huge plains into a kind of lunar landscape. But other changes are also visible. Houses, schools, a golf course. Prosperity, therefore, emphasizes a mine boss. Seven years ago this was still a dull provincial town, and now look! A little further on the big changes are about to begin. There is a giant copper mine here, and for that an area of ​​no less than four hundred square kilometers is expropriated. The new owners promise economic prosperity. Did not a city like Johannesburg also start out as a simple mine? Naturally, people living in the area can not stay. They have worked the land for generations, but they can not show ownership documents. They have not been asked anything. They do get compensation for their houses, chickens and fruit trees, but not for the ground. "Everything under the ground is state property," says a representative of the mining company, "and that is what the state can rent out to us." Residents who do not want to leave are squatters who violate the law from that moment on. Even though they were born and lived there all their lives. Those former residents are moved to neat new houses outside the area. With toilet, and bigger than the previous house, but without land to grow food. Some of them seem satisfied with that. Most do not. 'In Africa, land has sentimental value. You are no one without land, 'says one of them. "So you're destroying these people. They will not pass on anything to the next generation. " Episode 6. Copper fever  For Africa, trade is better than aid, or so they say. On a journey to copper thieves and mine bosses, Bram Vermeulen investigates the truth behind the slogan.

What is the role today of business in society? What is the purpose of business? How effective are business organizations in their pursuits and how can business education help in the process? These, and many other related questions have long been at the core of debate and controversy between the critics and advocates of capitalism and free enterprise. 51 international researchers and practitioners from various business schools and backgrounds explored these questions during the first international, interdisciplinary workshop organized on this topic. Discover their contributions through various formats (videos, articles, presentations) and form your own opinion... Critiques are grounded in the belief that free enterprise is by nature a selfish endeavour and is incompatible with the common good. While a minority of opponents still believes in the superiority of "collective ownership of the means of production", the majority of critics have realized that there may be no viable alternative to a market economy and call on governments to impose severe restraints and penalties on business to minimize the negative impacts of selfish pursuits for profit. On the other hand, unconditional advocates of free enterprise recognize that the purpose and sole social responsibility of business is to maximize profit and argue that it is precisely by doing so that business organizations create social value...

Gemfields' results reflect “phenomenal year of growth”, says chief exec
Ian Harebottle, chief executive of coloured gemstone specialist Gemfields (LON:GEM), says the company’s full-year results reflect what’s been a phenomenal year of growth for the business. The miner said it had either met or exceeded production guidance at its Kagem emerald and Montepuez ruby operations, with record prices achieved at the six auctions held during the period. Costs increased and pre-tax profits were lower, but speaking to Proactive, Harebottle puts this down to a “quadrupling of the size and growth of the company.”

Gemfields PLC set for a boost as 'demand for rubies has been underplayed' says analyst
Panmure Gordon's commodities and mining analyst Keiron Hodgson tells Proactive: '' Gemfields is driving demand for precious stones in an industry that continues to develop and if you consider that the coloured stone market is arguably some way behind that of diamond market but is catching up very very quickly''. ''I think the ruby industry could surprise to the upside - the demand for rubies has probably been underplayed for some time, but you obviously need to be mindful of new supply sources, you've got Myanmar and other regions looking to come into the supply chain.'' On the outlook for diamonds Hodgson said: ''From now, Diwali in India, through until the Chinese New Year and everything in between is arguably the most important period for diamond retail which then in turn drives demand throughout the value chain down to the mining companies at least through to the end of the first quarter of 2017.

Gemfields Global Launch with Mila Kunis, London
Gemfields and Mila Kunis Celebrate 2013 Global Launch and Exclusive Collaborations with International Jewellery Designers London, 14 March 2013 Gemfields, the world's leading coloured gemstone producer, was thrilled to unveil a truly one-of-a-kind set of fine jewellery collaborations with 36 leading international designers. This spectacular set of designer collaborations underscores not only the beauty of the gemstones, but the range of shades, shapes and sizes that make up Gemfields' portfolio. From precision cuts, cabochons that look like candy to slices that are ruggedly organic, each Gemfields Zambian emerald, Mozambican ruby and Zambian amethyst was the starting point for a bespoke creation. "Although Gemfields doesn't make jewellery, they work with a wide range of international designers to create one-of-a-kind pieces from their ethically-soured emeralds and rubies," says Mila Kunis. "I've loved wearing these pieces on the red carpet because they are all so unique and they stand for Gemfields' mission of responsible sourcing." "We are honoured to work with such a broad range of extraordinary talent from around the world," says Ian Harebottle, Gemfields CEO. "While we normally focus on the gemstones, and not the finished jewellery, it's hugely gratifying to see our ethically-sourced rare coloured gems come to life through the unique visions of our partner jewellers." The collection was revealed in London at Phillips Auction House, travelling next through India and finally to Las Vegas, where it will be displayed at the Couture show in May. The pieces, ranging in retail price from US$1,130 to US$750,000, reflect the bold aesthetic of each designer in the form of fine jewellery. To coincide with the launch of this project, Gemfields is unveiled a new global advertising campaign featuring brand ambassador Mila Kunis wearing ethically-sourced Zambian emeralds and Mozambican rubies shot by Mario Sorrenti in Los Angeles. As well as developing proprietary product and practices, Gemfields is committed to bolstering the coloured gemstone sector, especially emphasising the rare, unique qualities of coloured gems. Emeralds, for example, are more than 20 times scarcer than diamonds, although arguably infinitely more exciting, made up of countless microscopic fissures within in each stone. No two emeralds are the same. PARTNER JEWELLERS Alexandra Mor, Amrapali, Anndra Neen, Bina Goenka, Coomi, Dickson Yewn, Dominic Jones, Duffy, Fabergé, Farah Khan, Fernando Jorge, Hannah Martin, Hoorsenbuhs, Jasmine Alexander, Jayce Wong, Jordan Askill, Kara Ross, Kimberly McDonald, Mappin & Webb, Monica Vinader, Nam Cho, Natasha Collis, Octium, Parulina, Penny Winter, Robinson Pelham, Shaun Leane, Solange Azagury-Partridge, Stephen Webster, Sutra, Svetla, The Gem Palace, Theo Fennell, Wendy Yue, Wright &Teague, Zaiken.

Gemfields CEO Harebottle eyeing Colombian project
Ian Harebottle, the chief executive of Gemfields (LON:GEM), says he would be “very disappointed” if the company does not add a Colombian emerald asset to its growing portfolio. The group saw revenues more than treble last year to US$160mln, while it registered a pre-tax profit of US$37mln compared with a loss of US$20mln the year before. Harebottle talks about the value that Fabergé brings to the group, the move into sapphires, and says the company’s cash and current value of its stockpiles is almost equal to its market capitalisation.
