]Luanda, Angola --- 09 July 2012 - The chairman of Angolan state diamond company, Empresa Nacional de Diamantes de Angola (Endiama) has come out in favour of artisanal diamond mining, saying it is important because it allows for exploration of natural resources when industrial reserves run out.

Macauhub quotes Angolan news agency Angop as reporting that Carlos Sumbula said that as soon as industrial exploration ended due to reduced reserves, the remainder was still profitable for artisanal mining.

“These reserves are granted to Angolan citizens so that they can carry out artisanal mining,” noted Sumbula, adding that in some cases Endiama had granted direct artisanal concessions, meaning that, “we do not need industrial activity to have ended.”

The chairman of Endiama also said that in future artisanal mining would be the responsibility of diamond sales company Sociedade de Comercialização de Diamantes de Angola (Sodiam), and would be coordinated by logistics company Endiama Logística Integrada (Enditrade) together with residents of the respective areas.

Sumbula added that Endiama had started distributing mining permits in several municipal areas and over the next few days these would also be distributed in the province of Lunda Sul.
