This episode features an in-depth interview with independent diamond analyst and consultant Paul Zimnisky on the rise this year of laboratory-created diamonds and their effect on the retail diamond market as well as the prospects of traditional miners of natural diamonds.
In the interview, Paul and Northern Miner editor-in-chief John Cumming also take a look at some of Paul’s stock-market investments in the diamond-mining sector including Mountain Province Diamonds.
