Lucara’s Karowe diamond mine delivers another stunner

Canadian diamond junior Lucara Diamond Corp. has recovered a 327 carat, top white gem diamond, from its 100%-owned Karowe diamond mine located in Botswana. 

Eight diamonds greater than 100 carats have now been recovered at Karowe since the beginning of the year. This includes the recovery of 472 carat diamond earlier this month, which was the third largest diamond ever recovered from Karowe.

Lucara will hold its first exceptional stone tender in June 2018. Included for sale in the tender will be the 327 and the 472 carat diamonds, alongside other qualifying diamonds that have been recovered since the start of the year.

Viewings will be held in Gaborone, Botswana between June 10 and June 19 with the tender scheduled to close at 4 pm CET on 17 June 2018.
