BlueRock recovers stone at Kareevlei

BlueRock Diamonds has recovered a 12.6 carat diamond from its Kareevlei Diamond Mine in the Kimberley region of South Africa.

“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.”
