Lucapa Diamond Adds Target Areas to Drill Program

Lucapa Diamond Company Ltd. (ASX:LOM) announced that mineral chemistry analysis of earlier kimberlite samples has revealed further target areas. They will be included at a drill program that’s set to start at the Angola-based Lulo diamond project in early 2016.

Highlights include:

  • Mineral chemistry analysis of previous Lulo kimberlite samples reveals purple G10D garnets from kimberlites L165 and L18
  • Kimberlite drilling program planned for early 2016 at the high-priority L259, L13 and L15 kimberlites to be extended to include the kimberlite clusters around L165 and L18, where follow-up sampling work has been recommended
  • Kimberlite L165 is close to the diamond-bearing L170 kimberlite, where both a G10D garnet and a micro diamond were previously recovered
  • Kimberlite L18 is located adjacent to the L19 kimberlite and close to L46, which have both been found to be diamond-bearing pipes
  • Drilling of the high priority kimberlites L259, L13 and L15 near alluvial Mining Block 8 will follow the electromagnetic and gravity surveys currently being conducted
