Lucapa Diamond Company (ASX:LOM) and its partners, Endiama and Rosas & Petalas, have provided an update on its diamond production operations and exploration activities at the Lulo Diamond Project in Angola.

As quoted in the press release:

Production Highlights – July 2016 month

  • Record recovery of 59 large Special diamonds (diamonds > 10.8 carats in weight)
  • Record diamond production of 3,164 carats
  • Record diamond grade of 15 carats per 100 cubic metres
  • Record processing volumes of 21,114 bulk cubic metres (Bcm)

Exploration Highlights

  • Drilling at kimberlite target L259 continues after early commissioning delays were experienced. Re-sedimented volcaniclastic kimberlite (“SRKV”), or crater lake sediments, were intersected in initial hole-drilling targeting pyroclastic kimberlite (“PK”).
  • Additional larger drill rig scoped, identified and will be ordered shortly to accelerate kimberlite drilling program.
  • New zone of terrace gravels identified from ongoing alluvial exploration-3km further upstream of the delineated JORC diamond resource, highlighting the potential for the entire 51km stretch of Cacuilo River at Lulo to host large alluvial diamonds.
