The company will remain in the trading halt until the earlier of the announcement or the commencement of trading on Tuesday, 31st January 2017.

Lucapa’s flagship asset and principal investment is the Lulo Diamond Project, which is a partnership over a 3,000 square kilometre concession in the African country of Angola.

The company produced 5,313 carats of diamonds from Lulo during the December quarter, an increase of 147% on the 2015 December quarter.

This resulted in strong cash generation of A$19.2 million from diamond sales, which was more than the entire diamond sales during FY2015.
