Gemfields owns 75% of Web Gemstone Mining (WGM), a company that holds a 148.6-square-kilometre emerald exploration licence in southern Ethiopia. Exploration activity began in June 2015 in an area to the north of the licence, called the Dogogo Block. The area was selected based on favourable geological settings and evidence of past artisanal activity.
