De Beers has released the dates of the 10 sights it will hold in Gaborone, Botswana, next year. The miner sells around 90% of its rough at those sales, with the rest available at auctions.

The January sight will be the first in De Beers’ new intention-to-offer (ITO) period, which is switching to a calendar-year format. Prospective long-term buyers, or sightholders, tell De Beers how much rough they will require during the period — their “intention to offer” — with the miner subsequently informing them how much they will receive.

The company also announced auction dates for the first five sales cycles of 2020.
