Abdoulaye Ndiaye, Chairman of Grizzly, expressed satisfaction with the successful emerald auction, highlighting the achievement of new records. Ndiaye also emphasized the robustness of the emerald market, which continues to grow in size each year. He noted that Zambian rough emeralds alone account for a significant 70% share of the global supply.

Having been established in 1997, Grizzly Mining consistently produces around 60 million carats of emeralds annually. The company conducts four auctions each year, corresponding to each quarter. The proceeds from the most recent auction will be directed towards the expansion of the mining operations, Ndiaye disclosed.

The accomplishment of this record-breaking revenue underscores the enduring demand for emeralds and the strategic role of Zambian rough emeralds in the global market.
