RAPAPORT... Botswana Diamonds appointed former Rockwell Diamonds chief executive officer James Campbell as its managing director, effective immediately.

Campbell was formerly a managing director of African Diamonds, where he was closely involved in the discovery of the Karowe mine in Botswana before it was sold to Lucara Diamond Corp. After the acquisition, he became Lucara’s vice-president for new business, working on developing the Karowe deposit. He also spent more than 20 years with De Beers, his last role being general manager for advanced exploration and resource delivery.

He resigned from Rockwell in September in the middle of an operational review.

At Botswana Diamonds, Campbell (pictured) will work closely with Russia-based miner ALROSA on its joint exploration venture with Botswana Diamonds in the Orapa and Gope regions of Botswana, and with other joint owners of the Maibwe project in the Gope region.

Campbell “brings a wealth of experience and skills in the diamond industry, which I believe will help drive our joint ventures with ALROSA in Orapa and Gope forward,” said chairman John Teeling.
