Thabo Manne - Cullinan and the Community

Updated: Mar 31

Back in September, I visited the Cullinan Diamond Mine where I met with management, learned about the mine both past and present, and saw the underground operation.

It was an experience I’ll never forget and encourage others to go!! (The mine is open to the public for surface tours and only about an hour drive from Johannesburg).

While there, I sat with Thabo Manne, the social performance manager at Cullinan, to learn more about the work the mine and owner Petra Diamonds are doing to engage with the community and further the company's sustainability program.

I am so grateful to have had this opportunity as our conversation, on the latest episode of 'Diamond Gems with Avi Krawitz,' opened my eyes to another side of the diamond industry not often talked about.
