Gregg P. Lyell
Gregg’s Gems and Mining, LLc
Laurel, Maryland. USA

My name is Gregg Lyell and I have been in the diamond and gold trade
since 1969. For the last 14 years or so I was living in Sierra
Leone, west Africa mining and buying diamonds and gold. I held the
Diamond Dealers license from 2000 until my departure back home in

My home is now in Maryland next to DC but I am always ready to go
back to Africa and work. I take investors to West Africa, mainly
Sierra Leone, Ghana, Liberia and Nigeria for rough diamonds and

We also offer mining operation setups in the countries as well to
interested individuals. I can take an investor and set him/her up in
a diamond buying operation in Sierra Leone from starting their
company to exporting their diamonds through the GDO, in Freetown.

I am currently organizing a small gold mining operation in Northern
Nigeria and my future plans are for moving to Ecuador for gold
mining and give diamonds a rest for awhile.

If I can assist you in any way please contact me and let me know
what you want. I offer my cutter for your diamond cutting needs as
well and that includes re-cutting of damaged and broken polished
diamonds also.

Thank you and have a good day
Gregg and Yema Lyell
