Lucara Diamond Corp will announce the winner of a naming contest for its 1 100+ ct diamond during simultaneous press conferences held in Gaborone and the Investing in African Mining Indaba conference, in Cape Town, on February 9.
Open only to Botswana residents, the company had, to date, received more than 11 000 entries, all vying to put a name to the country’s largest-ever, and the world’s second-largest, diamond.
The Type IIa diamond was recovered in November of last year from the company's Karowe mine. The winner would receive a cash prize of P25 000.
