Lucapa Diamond Company Ltd. (ASX:LOM) announced the recovery of more “special” diamonds (diamonds weighing over 10.8 carats) from its Angola-based Lulo diamond project. Among others, a 133.4-carat gem has been recovered — that’s the largest diamond recovered from Lulo to date.
Other highlights include:

  • Two D-colour gems weighing 29.2 carats and 11.1 carats among other large special diamonds recovered from Mining Block 8
  • Previous exploration bulk sampling in the Mining Block 6 area produced large special diamonds weighing 95.5 carats, 53.2 carats, 32.2 carats, 24.5 carats and 10.9 carats
  • Mining and processing of gravels from Mining Block 6 is planned to continue throughout the Angolan wet season and beyond
  • Mining Block 6 is just 4km from the diamond plant and ~2km downstream of Mining Block 8, where Lucapa has been recovering large valuable diamonds
  • Size and compound nature of the 133.4 carat diamond points to a close primary source, reinforcing Lucapa’s focus on its high priority kimberlite targets
