Excavators and mining trucks operate in a pit beneath the main kimberlite rock processing facility at Jwaneng mine, operated by the Debswana Diamond Co., a joint venture between De Beers and Botswana's government, in Jwaneng, Botswana, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012. De Beers, the biggest diamond producer by revenue, is moving the sorting and trading of rough stones to Botswana from London to secure access to the world's largest supplier of diamonds by value and challenge Antwerp's dominance as the world's biggest trading hub for rough diamonds.
