RAPAPORT... Rio Tinto promoted Jean-Marc Lieberherr as its new managing director of the diamond business. Lieberherr, who currently serves as chief commercial officer at Rio Tinto Diamonds, will start his new position on September 1.

Rio Tinto is consolidating its diamond business after making the decision to remain in the sector following an 11-month review of its operations. As part of a broader restructuring strategy, the group is consolidating its diamond mining operations under Kim Truter, the current managing director of the Argyle Diamond mine and former president of the Diavik mine. Truter will serve as chief operating officer of the diamond business, reporting to Lieberherr.

The company expects to raise rough diamond production to 15.7 million carats in 2013 from 13.122 million carats recovered in 2012.
