De Beers has released its sales schedule for next year, with the miner holding its usual 10 sights across the 12-month period.

The miner sells most of its rough to sightholders through a contract system under which clients make certain purchasing commitments in return for consistent supply. In April 2021, the miner introduced a new sales agreement offering more bespoke supply for manufacturers, dealers and retailers. Alrosa, which operates a similar system, has not yet published a 2023 schedule on its website.

The dates for De Beers’ sights in 2023 are as follows:

• Sight 1: January 16 to 20
• Sight 2: February 20 to 24
• Sight 3: March 27 to 31
• Sight 4: May 2 to 5
• Sight 5: June 5 to 9
• Sight 6: July 10 to 14
• Sight 7: August 14 to 18
• Sight 8: September 18 to 22
• Sight 9: October 23 to 27
• Sight 10: December 4 to 8
