Exiting the mine
All people exiting the Mine through the Personnel Control Centre (PCC) are to ensure that they are free of any gravel prior to exiting the mine. Those exiting blue areas will be randomly searched, while those exiting red areas will always be searched. A separate arrangement can be made for people with disabilities or VIPs by prior application to the Senior Security Manager.
The mine has a diamond pick-up policy which provides guidance on what to do in case one spots a diamond. The following steps should be taken:
- Report the find to security immediately via radio or colleague.
- If alone, mark the area properly and clearly.
- If with a colleague, send them to alert security. The finder remains with the stone.
- Do not take the suspect stone into your possession.
There is a two-tier reward system for diamond finds. The amount is based on the quality and size of the diamond.
Do not touch it, report it!
