Extraction Podcast: Gemfields returns to London

After a dramatic exit from London in 2017, Gemfields (SA:GML) is coming back. The emerald and ruby miner and Fabergé owner was taken off Aim by its major shareholder Pallinghurst, run by former BHP chief executive Brian Gilbertson. He and his son Sean had been involved in the precious stones company from the start, but the takeover saw a fight between the family and Gemfields management, led by chief executive at the time Ian Harebottle. In this episode of the Extraction Podcast, Sean Gilbertson – now chief executive of Gemfields – shows us stunning stones, explains why rubies, emeralds and sapphires are different from struggling diamonds and why he wants to keep the loss-making Fabergé in the portfolio.
