Lucapa Recovers Another +100-ct Diamond at LuloJuly 06, 23
(IDEX Online) - Lucapa has recovered a 180.87-carat Type IIa white diamond at its Lulo alluvial mine, in Angola.
It's the second +100 carat diamond of the year so far. In February it found a 150-carat Type IIa D-color white diamond.
And it's the 37th +100 carat since since the Australian miner began commercial production at Lulo in 2015.
Last November the 170.2-carat Lulo Rose, believed to be the largest pink diamond found in the last 300 years, was sold at tender for an undisclosed sum.
Lucapa, which also operates the Mothae mine, in Lesotho, has reported encouraging exploration results from its ongoing exploration program to discover the primary kimberlite source at Lulo.
