Lucapa Diamond Company has announced the recovery of an 83.9 carat diamond from the new 1.1 Mtpa Mothae kimberlite plant in Lesotho – the fourth +50 carat diamond recovered to date from the new Mothae mine. Lucapa said that while the 83.9 carat diamond was not gem-quality, “it continues to underline the large-stone nature of the Mothae kimberlite resource”.

Previous 50+ finds included a 51.2 carat diamond in February and Specials weighing 78 carats and 89 carats from the 2018 bulk sampling program.

 Lucapa Managing Director Stephen Wetherall said: “We are highly encouraged that the coarse size fraction in our recently commenced commercial production through the new 1.1 Mtpa Mothae plant is reinforcing why Lucapa invested in this second high-value resource to complement production from the Lulo mine in Angola”.
