Vered Toledo, chief operating officer of Shefa Yamim (ATM) (LON:SEFA), talks to Proactive about the ongoing bulk sampling at Kishon Mid-Reach in Israel, where the unique Carmel sapphire has been prevalent so far.
Fourteen samples have been taken from zone 1 at the alluvial deposit, of which two are left to be processed, she said.
Once that is done, the company will process samples from zone 2.
Toledo explained that Carmel sapphires have three unique elements of titanium, zirconium, and aluminium.
Kishon Mid-Reach is in the Mount Carmel region, hence the name.
