Diamond Exploration Strategies (Pty) Ltd (DES)., a private company registered in the UK., owns 100% of Diamexstrat Botswana (Pty) Ltd., which has 2 428 km2 of highly prospective diamond prospecting licences in Botswana.

DES’s portfolio encompasses prospective greenfields terrain and brownfields alluvial and kimberlite/lamproite targets. Three areas are drill-ready, pending environmental approval.

Botswana is the premier country for diamond exploration world-wide due to its unique diamond-favourable geology, stable political environment and low operating cost structures, and diamonds are currently one of the mineral commodities predicted to have significant growth potential due to growing consumer markets and supply/demand shortfalls.
