It also recovered two light pink diamonds from the north zone of the Mothae kimberlite pipe.
“These recoveries, together with the recovery of a 3 carat pink diamond in the historic bulk sampling conducted in 2008-2012, are proof that Mothae also hosts pink diamonds,” said Lucapa.
The company recently unearthed other specials including an 89 carat yellow from the south-east zone, a 25 carat yellow from the neck zone and a 12 carat white from the north zone.
The ongoing bulk sampling programme was designed to expand the published +1 million carat JORC resource by testing areas of the Mothae kimberlite pipe which are not included in the resource or which require further sampling to enhance the resource.
