The 129.58-carat diamond was recovered from alluvial Mining Block 6 along with another large high-value diamond weighing 78.61 carats.

Testing has confirmed that both the 129.58-carat and 78.61-carat diamonds are premium Type IIa D-colour gems.

The latest large gem-quality diamond recoveries reinforce the Lulo diamond field’s large-stone kimberlite potential.

Mining Blocks 6, 8 and 28 spans 6 kilometres along the Cacuilo River.

This area is the focus of the ongoing Lulo kimberlite drilling and exploration program, which aims to find the primary hard rock sources of the exceptional Lulo alluvial diamonds.

Assays from the ongoing kimberlite drill program are expected shortly.
