Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (ASX: LOM) (“Lucapa” or “the Company”) and its partners Empresa Nacional de Diamantes E.P. (“Endiama”) and Rosas & Petalas S.A. are pleased to report a second consecutive monthly record for carats recovered from the Lulo alluvial mine in Angola.
3,852 carats were recovered by Lulo from the MB06 leziria area in August 2020, which included 52 specials. This is the second consecutive month in which a carat recovery record has been achieved by the team at Lulo (see ASX announcement of 10 August 2020) in spite of the challenges placed on personnel movement and the operations as a result of COVID-19.
Mining in July and August 2020 concentrated on the MB06 flood plain (leziria) which included the area made accessible by the recently completed river diversion (refer ASX presentation of 30 July 2020). The gravel deposits in this MB06 leziria area have been largely contiguous, contained thick gravel layers and of high grade. The largest diamond recovered from the MBO6 leziria area is a 61 carat white D-colour Type IIa diamond.
Lucapa Managing Director Stephen Wetherall commented: “It is very encouraging to note that the leziria area in MB06 is continuing to deliver the quality and quantity of diamonds that could rival the production from the prolific MB08. This is further evidence of the very special resource that exists at Lulo and why Lucapa and its partners continues to search for the source of these magnificent diamonds.”
