De Beers' Response

De Beers suspended all operating activities in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in 2004...Aware that, following the Court case, discussions are continuing with Government and the communities, De Beers initiated a broad stakeholder consultation process...to evaluate the feasibility of conducting low impact, short-term exploratory work in our remaining license areas in the reserve....De Beers is committed to engaging communities and other interested parties, and consultations were held with a broad cross-section of stakeholders including Government agencies; NGOs and, critically, community organisations and the communities living in, or with, strong ties to the CKGR
