“Since the beginning of the development in 1967, the pipe has given hundreds of large diamonds to our company. In the near future, this rare specimen will go to the United Selling Organization for the detailed study and evaluation,” Evgeny Agureev, Member of the Management Board and Director of the United Sales Organization at ALROSA, said.
The Udachnaya diamond pipe was discovered in 1955. It is among the largest primary diamond deposits both in Yakutia and worldwide.
Previously, ALROSA also announced that its list of long-term customers within the contract period covering 2018–2020 was supplemented by six new companies, including Chow Sang Sang Jewellery (China), Kapu Gems (India), Mohit Diamonds (India), VD Global (India), M. Suresh Company (UAE) and Richold SA (Switzerland), and now the miner supplies gem-quality diamonds under 59 long-term contracts, and industrial diamonds - under 10 contracts.
