BlueRock Diamonds has recovered a 12.6 carat diamond from its Kareevlei Diamond Mine in the Kimberley region of South Africa.
Mike Houston, Executive Chairman comments:
“In line with our reporting policy to inform the market of diamonds recovered estimated to be valued at over $50k, we are delighted to announce that another large diamond has been recovered from Kareevlei.
“To put this into perspective, given the average engagement ring weight in the UK is 0.6 carats, a 12.6-carat diamond is considered exceptional.
“We are hopeful that the recovery of this diamond marks the start of mining better quality diamonds, having worked through a difficult area in recent months.”
