How Are Diamonds Mined? There Are Actually 3 Different

2019-10-28  Alluvial diamond mining occurs in riverbeds and beaches, where thousands of years of erosion and natural forces such as wind, rain, and water currents wash diamonds from their primary deposits in kimberlite pipes to beaches and riverbeds. Miners build walls or divert rivers to expose the diamond-bearing dry river or ocean bed.
