Company awaited environmental approvals related to tiger habitats.

British-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto will close the Bunder diamond mine in India after delays related to environmental approvals, Bloomberg reports.

The company said it is working with federal and state governments to find another investor to take over the mine. Rio Tinto now has two working diamond mines, in Western Australia and Canada’s Northwest Territories.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
