The Diavik Diamond Mine is surrounded by a pristine and challenging landscape of vast tundra, frozen lakes and uninhabited islands that it shares with bears, wolverine and migrating caribou.

Planned in consultation with local Indigenous leaders to ensure respectful and responsible operations, the Diavik mine was meticulously created to ensure minimal impact on the environment and maximum benefit for the Indigenous communities that have served as stewards of this breathtaking wilderness for eons.

The Diavik mine brought new opportunities for employment, training and sustained economic growth for the local communities, while respecting and helping preserve their culture and traditional way of life.

Today, about half of the workers at the mine are from the north of Canada and half of those are Indigenous, as Diavik continues its internationally recognized commitment to the protection of the land and the animals and humans who inhabit it.
