Stellar Diamonds receives approval for Tongo project


Stellar Diamonds has received environmental approval to mine at its Tongo Dyke-1 project in Sierra Leone. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the London-listed diamond development company’s Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA) application for its 100 per cent-owned project.

“The approval of our ESHIA marks another key step in the process of obtaining the mining and environmental licenses that will allow for the development of the 1.45 million carat diamond resource at Tongo Dyke-1, one of four kimberlite dykes at our Tongo project,” notes Karl Smithson, Stellar’s chief executive officer.
