Korite International is a privately owned and operated company based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The company has been mining the rare and exotic gemstone Ammolite since 1979.
Our mining operation consists of open pits usually two hectares (five acres) in size and approximately 15-20 meters (50-65 feet) deep. Over the years, Korite has excavated approximately 16 hectares (40 acres) of land, of which about 14 hectares (35 acres) have been completely restored to their natural state. Korite has proudly set new environmental standards in their reclamation process.
