How Argyle Changed The Diamond Industry


Share
Last year, Australia’s Argyle diamond mine closed after 37 years of operation. This month, Melbourne University Publishing released
Here, Kells (pictured), a writer and adjunct professor at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia, talks with
JCK about the mine’s origins, why its impact is still felt today, and his favorite stories from its 37-year
 history.
JCK:
A lot of diamond mines come about based on one person’s lone quest. Was that the case with Argyle?
Stuart Kells: That person was Ewen Tyler. There was an important geologist in the 1940s who had hypothesized that the geology of the Kimberley [region of Australia] was similar to the geology of the diamond-bearing parts of South Africa. Ewen Tyler was a student of his.

The remote Kimberley region of Western Australia has a rich history and unique geography. In the 1960s De Beers, the world’s largest diamond company, sent gem-hunters to the area but they came away empty-handed. It was a vast region to survey, and they’d overlooked something vital.
A few years later, a team of Australian geologists with a tiny budget searched for even tinier mineral clues. Those clues led them to the earth’s largest diamond deposit and the world’s largest and richest source of coloured diamonds including the very rare pink diamonds. Based on in-depth research and interviews—including with Alan King Jones, Bill Leslie and ‘the father of Australian diamonds’, Ewen Tyler—Argyle: The Impossible Story of Australian Diamonds details the almost overwhelming challenges with realising a diamond mining venture in Australia, shows how these obstacles were overcome, and explores the mine’s impact and legacy.

They say diamonds are forever, but time is finally up for Australia's only operational diamond mine in Western Australia's remote Kimberley region.
Since opening its doors almost 40 years ago, Rio Tinto's Argyle diamond mine has produced 865 million carats of rough diamonds and is one of the few known sources of pink diamonds in the world.
Key points:
Rio Tinto's Argyle mine produces 90 per cent of the world's pink diamonds
