The 113 carat gem-quality white stone is the 1st +100 ct diamond recovered from Mining Block 46, immediately downstream of the Canguige river. It is particularly significant, as it shows that these large and high-value diamonds continue to occur right up to the current focus area of our kimberlite exploration program.
This recovery builds on the performance of Lulo in the latter half of 2020 and bodes well for the coming months as mining focuses on the southern terrace mining blocks during the wet season.
