DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SDKA International, a global resources firm dedicated to financing, production, refining, processing, transportation, storage and supply of a broad range of commodities, announces its entry into the North American market and the appointment of Raisaka Masebelanga as Vice Chairman. The company is dedicated to purchasing sustainable mining assets and producing industry-leading research on new mining and extraction techniques, methodologies, and acquisition targets.

Founded in 2011 as a registered entity in the United Arab Emirates, SDKA International maintains a global presence with offices in New York City, Johannesburg, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The firm's customer base is wide-ranging, as dozens of governments and blue-chip organizations currently rely on SDKA International's global footprint and extensive supply network.

SDKA International clients rely on two types of service offerings: third party product sourcing and product origination from SDKA International's proprietary production assets. In addition to global commodities logistics services, SDKA International also provides a variety of financing options through select partner organizations, ranging from supply chain financing to asset acquisitions.

"SDKA is focused solely on providing world-class services across multiple industries including oil and gas, precious metals and other high-value commodities types," said Christopher Kelly SDKA International CEO. "For commodities that have a robust but inefficient supply chain, SDKA is able to extract value thanks to our decades of experience in developing, refining and marketing commodity-based resources."

To expand SDKA International's current operations in the diamond value chain, the firm has selected Raisaka Masebelanga as Vice Chairman. With more than 25 years of diamond industry experience, Mr. Masebelanga most recently served as Chief Sales Officer for De Beers Consolidated Mines and he also served as the Chairman of the Harry Oppenheimer Training School. Mr. Masebelanga holds a Masters in Law from University of London, King's College and has practiced law in both London and South Africa.

"We look forward to leveraging Mr. Masebelanga's sector expertise and professional experience to grow SDKA International's robust portfolio of diamond service offerings," concluded Kelly.
