Fura Gems launches all-female wash plant team at emerald project in Colombia

Dev Shetty, President & CEO of FURA Gems (LON:FUR)(TSXV:FURA) (OTC:FUGMF), discusses with Proactive London's Andrew Scott the launch of an all-female wash plant team at the Coscuez emerald project in Boyacá, Colombia - a first for both the gemstone industry and the mining sector.

Shetty says women in West Boyaca have contributed to emerald mining as ‘barequeras’, washing tailings to find rough emerald, but until now had only been employed for formal work in areas such as general services - kitchen and cleaning - at the Coscuez Emerald Mine.
