Lucapa recovers 38.6ct pink diamond in Angola, eyes London listing

09 september 2016
Lucapa Diamond has recovered a 38.6-carat pink diamond from alluvial mining operations at the Lulo diamond project in Angola.
The ASX-listed mining and exploration company, which operates Lulo in partnership with Angola's national diamond company, Endiama and private group Rosas & Petalas, said in a statement that the stone was the largest fancy colored diamond recovered to date at Lulo, suppassing a 28.5 carat light pink diamond included in the most recent Lulo sale parcel.
An exceptional 404 ct Type IIa D-colour diamond was also recovered last February, which later sold for $16-million.
Meanwhile, company chief executive Stephen Wetherall told the Africa Downunder conference in Perth that Lucapa was considering listing on the London Aim exchange and acquire more projects in Africa.
He also said that Lucapa was mulling increasing its current 40 percent stake in Lulo.
