Letlhakane, meaning "little reeds", is owned by Debswana, a partnership between the De Beers company and the government of Botswana.

The mine produces 3.6 million tons per year of ore and an additional 15 million tons per year of waste rock. In 2003, the Letlhakane mine produced 1.06 million carats (212 kg) of diamond. The recoverable ore grade at the mine is about 0.26 carats (52 mg) per ton. As of 2005, known reserves will allow production at current levels to continue for 11 years.
