Other Projects

Ceylon Mining Cooperation

In 2011, Philipp Requat became involved in gemstone-mining. Together with Peter Wiesinger and Navinka Wickramasinghe, several small-scale operations were established under the label of the Ceylon Mining Cooperation in Sri Lanka.


Famed for its precious stones since biblical times, the island remains a major exporter of sapphires. The enterprise was founded with the conviction to introduce unprecedented standards of ecological and social responsibility to this ancient industry. Accordingly, directives were set to refrain from the use of chemical agents and ensure complete re-naturalisation of affected landscapes within one monsoon season. The Ceylon Mining Cooperation became the first outfit in Sri Lanka to pay employees a monthly wage on top of their share in finds, whilst further donating a percentage of profits to local temples. Although mines and sites within the framework have since been integrated into a larger Sri Lankan mining concern, their dedication to these standards persists. Requat Advisory manages Philipp Requat's interests in the industry. As such, we can act as a supplier of Ceylon sapphires of various shapes, colours and quality levels to wholesalers, jewellers and private clients.
