The biggest diamond ever found in North America has been unearthed by Dominion Diamond Mines and Rio Tinto Group at a mine in Canada's frozen north.
The 552-carat yellow gem was found at the Diavik mine in the Northwest Territories, and is almost three times the size of the next largest stone ever found in Canada. While Diavik and the neighbouring Ekati mine produce some very high quality diamonds, they're not renowned for the sort of huge gems normally found in southern African mines.

The last year has been a roller coaster ride for Canadian-listed junior mining companies.
At mid-year, according to a report released recently from PwC, junior miners were flush with cash. Collectively, the top 100 mining companies listed on the TSX venture had $1.9 billion to spend, which represented a 21 per cent jump in comparison to the year before.
That boost translated into more drills turning, according to the latest quarterly results from Major Drilling, which does exploration work around the globe.
