Lucara Unearths Stellar Diamonds at Karowe Mine

Lucara Diamond Corp. (TSX: LUC) has unearthed a treasure trove of diamonds at its Karowe Mine in Botswana, further solidifying its position as a leading producer of high-quality gems. The company announced the recovery of several impressive stones, including a magnificent 320-carat diamond, a 111-carat gem-quality stone, and two additional diamonds exceeding 50 carats each.

“These recoveries from the South Lobe’s EM/PK(S) domain further validate the exceptional quality and potential of the Karowe Diamond Mine,” said William Lamb, President and CEO of Lucara Diamond Corp. “We are thrilled with this consistent success in uncovering large, high-value diamonds, solidifying Lucara’s place at the forefront of the premium gem diamond market.”

The recovered diamonds are particularly significant because they originated from the EM/PK(S) kimberlite ore deposit, known for producing some of the world’s most coveted diamonds. Lucara’s focus on this area strengthens the company’s decision to develop an underground mine specifically targeting this high-yield zone during its initial three years of operation.

“The EM/PK(S) recoveries underscore the effectiveness of our mining strategies and our commitment to innovation,” commented Eira Thomas, Lucara’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our cutting-edge diamond recovery technology is instrumental in identifying and retrieving these extraordinary stones, ensuring we maximize yield and value for our stakeholders.”

Lucara’s success at Karowe Mine is not only positive news for the company’s investors, but also for Botswana. The mine is a significant contributor to the country’s economy, and Lucara is committed to upholding responsible mining practices that benefit the local community.

With this latest windfall, Lucara is well-positioned to maintain its leadership in the premium diamond sector. The company’s dedication to unearthing exceptional gems, coupled with its innovative practices, promises to generate continued value for stakeholders in the years to come.
