Lucapa, partners get another five-year Angola exploration permit

30 november 2016
Lucapa Diamond Company together with its partners Endiama and Rosas & Petalas were awarded a license to explore at the Lulo diamond project in Angola for five additional years.
The approval follows an alluvial mining license that Lucapa and its partners got in November 2014.
Lucapa said that Angola’s Minister of Mines and Geology Francisco Manuel Monteiro de Queiroz had signed off the approval, which covers the entire 3,000 square kilometer Lulo site.
The move, said the ASX-listed company, would allow its local partners to conclude an investment contract.
It said the kimberlite exploration programme at Lulo had been stepped up in anticipation of the new license, with two rigs now drilling the priority kimberlite targets and a third rig due to arrive in Angola next month.
A time-domain electromagnetic survey would also be conducted to help identify further targets and improve the definition of known targets.
