Trans Hex Group is a diamond mining company with more than 50 years’ experience in producing gem-quality diamonds for the local and international market.
Through its well-established marine and land operations in South Africa, Namibia and interests in Angola, the Company is engaged directly, and through joint-ventures, in the exploration, mining and marketing of the highest quality diamonds from marine and land alluvial deposits.
Trans Hex Group seeks to identify and acquire diamond assets, either as full or partial stakeholder. The Group is actively evaluating potential new diamond properties and pursuing opportunities to expand its diamond marketing activities.
Trans Hex Group was established in 1965 by a number of entrepreneurial investors who wanted to explore a diamond-mining concession in the Namaqualand region of the Northern Cape.
The Company was subsequently appointed as a contractor to the then Small Business Development Corporation of South Africa to prospect for diamonds on the State-owned Komaggas farm, which it went on to mine profitably for more than 20 years.
In the ensuing decades, Trans Hex’s assets and expertise grew rapidly through the acquisition of numerous diamond-mining companies in Southern Africa and further afield.
The Company was listed on the JSE Limited in 1981 and was delisted in December 2019.
In 2010, the Company acquired a 33% stake in the Luana project (Somiluana Mine) in Angola.
In 2022, the Company acquired 100% of International Mining and Dredging Holdings and rebranded it Trans Hex Marine.
Trans Hex has been engaged in the exploration, mining and marketing of diamonds for more than 50 years.
Mining operations are presently focused in South Africa and Angola. The Company is renowned for consistently producing the highest quality diamonds available in the South African market. Rough production is sold into the open market, to the South African State Diamond Trader and to Sodiam, the Angolan state-run marketing company.
Trans Hex seeks to identify and acquire diamond assets, either as a full or partial shareholder. The Company’s business model is to locate, mine and process diamond deposits and to sell diamonds at an acceptable margin, in the process bringing its considerable in-house expertise to bear.
The Group is actively evaluating potential new diamond properties and pursuing opportunities to expand its diamond-marketing activities.
We aspire to enhance our position as a world-class player in the exploration, mining and marketing of diamonds of the highest quality.
