That is something! Amazing to see how much rock has to be gone through to find a few precious pebbles :shock: .

I really enjoyed that.
What is the percentage of tsavorite found to tonage of rock moved?

Good question Barbra.

I'm not really going to give figures as it really depends on where we mine.
Also, it pays much more to find a 5 gram piece rather than 5 times 1 gram ;-)

I hope that helps :oops:
