Lucapa has announced it has recovered another large stone, 144 carat Type IIa D-colour diamond, from Mining Block 08 (MB08). The diamond is the sixth +100 carat diamond recovered in 2021 so far and the 23rd +100 carat stone recovered at Lulo since exploration and mining operations began.

“Including the first +100 carat recovery from MB46 as 2020 ended, SML has now recovered seven +100 carat diamonds in a little over three months,” said Stephen Wetherall, Lucapa Managing Director. “With these +100 carat recoveries and the two Special pink diamonds in inventory, SML is well-positioned to achieve record diamond revenues for the first half of 2021.”
