Letseng Other Rock Mine (Lesotho)

The Letseng diamond mine is the world’s highest operating mine, located at 3.1 km above sea level and, unusually for a mine in southern Africa, operating specifications have to meet those of Canadian operations, since at Letseng temperatures in winter reach down to -20°C and the area can get up to 35 cm of snow.
