Rio Tinto spent $US2.5 billion expanding the Argyle mine below ground with an expected lifespan reaching 2021. Should they decide not to continue with the planned underground extension, the mine’s closure could come considerably sooner.

Rio boss Jean-Sebastien Jacques confirmed the mine’s future was under review: “It’s a pretty challenging market environment. Diamond prices are not great, except for the nice pink ones, so it’s a pretty challenging situation,” he said. “I can’t make any comment on any extension of the block cave at this point in time because everything is under review.”
