Mining

Belmont Mine is located In Brazil, specifically

in Itabira,Minas Gerais, and is one of the largest

and best-equipped emerald mines of the world.

Since 1978, when the deposit was found, Belmont has invested in technology to extract emeralds using the most modern equipment that can work in perfect harmony with the ideas of environmental preservation.

Belmont is a benchmark in the technology of ore processing for emeralds. In 2004, the emerald optical selecting process, totally mechanized and pioneer in the world, was put into operation. Stones are conveyor-belted through an optical system capable of electronically identifying and selecting the emeralds. It is a process of high precision, quickness and reliability that enables Belmont to keep high rates of productivity and reducing operational costs.

With the eyes turned to the future and to the expansion of its production, the company has kept massive investments in geological research of new areas, aiming at finding new emerald beds.

As a result of these investments, in 2012 the Canaan Mine, a joint venture between Belmont and Mineração Canaã, will start its production enabling the company to offer to the market a wider range of emeralds varieties.
