Lucapa Diamond Company Ltd. (ASX:LOM) announced that the Se251 kimberlite at its Angola-based Lulo diamond concession has been confirmed as a diamond-bearing pipe.
As quoted in the press release:
Lucapa has recovered four diamonds from its preliminary kimberlite sampling program at Se251. This included three diamonds weighing a total of 1.75 carats recovered from the No. 7 pit at the Se251 kimberlite pipe and one diamond weighing 0.10 carats from the No. 6b pit.
The biggest of the kimberlite diamonds weighed 1.05 carats.
The kimberlite diamonds from the No. 7 pit have been described by Lucapa’s site manager at Lulo as being of ‘good shape, good colour.’ Lucapa plans to use a Yehuda ZVI colorimeter, when available, to assess and confirm the quality and colour of the kimberlite diamonds recovered from Se251.
