Lucapa Unearths 130ct. Diamond in Angola: The 130 carat diamond is the 13th +100 carat diamond recovered to date and the second recovered so far in 2019. This recovery, together with the continued recovery of other large special white and fancy coloured diamonds continues to highlight the very special nature of the Lulo diamond concession.
The 130 carat diamond adds to the current inventory of high-value large Special run-of-mine diamonds, including top colour white diamonds, weighing 128 carats and 62 carats, as well as a number of fancy pink coloured diamonds.
The majority of the diamond inventory is scheduled for sale this quarter by the alluvial mining company, Sociedade Mineira Do Lulo, however, some diamonds may be extracted and held for tender at a later date.
Lucapa is a growing diamond company with high-value mines in Angola and Lesotho, along with exploration projects in Angola, Australia and Botswana.
Lucapa’s vision is to become a leading producer of large and premium-quality diamonds – from both alluvial and kimberlite sources – in Africa and other known diamond provinces around the world.
