Lucapa Recovers Large Specials and Fancy-Colored Diamonds at Lulo

April 13, 2016

Lucapa Diamond Company announced that trial mining at the E46 alluvial terraces at its Lulo Diamond Project in Angola has recovered more large specials and fancy-colored diamonds.

 

The latest special diamond recoveries include a 59-carat Type I diamond and a 33-carat Type II-a D-color gem. Lucapa also recovered a number of pink diamonds from E46 including an intense fancy 0.2-carat pink. These results, in addition to a 4-carat pink diamond recovered in initial bulk sampling at the site, suggest that the area should include fancy-colored diamonds, as well as large, high-quality gems.

 

E46 represents the fourth mining block area at Lulo that produces large alluvial diamonds – Mining Blocks 6, 8, 31 and E46 alluvial terraces. E46 is located ~10 kilometers upstream from alluvial blocks 6 and 8.
