Lucapa Diamond Company reports the recovery of two more +100 carat diamonds from the Mothae kimberlite mine in Lesotho.
Ownership of the mine is split as follows: Lucapa 70%; Government of Lesotho 30%.
The 220 carat stone is the largest of the three +100 carat diamonds recovered to date from Mothae since commercial production commenced in January 2019.
The 220 carat and 127 carat diamonds were recovered from the treatment of recovery tailings.
While the two diamonds are not of high-quality, they continue to underline the large-stone nature of the deposit.
The mine continues to perform well in its first year of commercial production, with another monthly production record of 3,096 carats in the month of October.
