In the ten years since the Lac de Gras discovery, Canada has yielded some very high grade diamond deposits. Five of the highest value per tonne deposits in the world are now in Canada, including the three richest in the world. By revenue, Canada is rapidly climbing the world diamond production ranking. From zero production in 1998, Canada has now overtaken Australia and become the world’s sixth largest diamond producer by revenue, accounting for about 6 % of world diamond production by revenue.It is estimated that Canada will be producing approximately 15 million carats per year by 2007, which will be almost 12% of world carat production. Canada’s projected diamond production looks even better by revenue. Based on three mines in Canada, revenue production will peak at about 19% of world diamond production by 2008. With commencement of full production at Diavik in 2003, Canada will be jockeying for third position with South Africa. There are more commercial diamond deposits yet to be confirmed throughout Canada. Canada’s statistics are impressive, but potential exists for these numbers to grow even further. There are other prospective diamond exploration regions in Canada. A few projects have emerged from the first decade or more of diamond exploration in Canada. These projects do not yet host advanced exploration or development stage projects. If all of them were developed, these discoveries could allow Canada to overtake Russia in second place of world revenue production rankings.

As of this month, Feb 2005, the diamond sector has shown signs of coming out of coma. Moving forward, there are signs the resource sector will continue to show high increase in market caps, specifically in diamond stocks. 2005/2006 can generate major interest in the resource sector.
