Lucapa recovers 11 diamonds at Australian project

19 february 2019

news_02072018_lucapa.pngLucapa Diamond said 11 diamonds weighing 0.284 carats were recovered from the processing of the Little Spring Creek bulk sample at its 80 percent-owned Brooking diamond project in Western Australia’s West Kimberley.
Although the results confirmed the diamondiferous nature of the Little Spring Creek lamproite, the macro-diamonds recovered above the 1mm cut-off were said to be below the company’s commercial hurdle. 
Lucapa also said no lamproite material was observed in the drill core of eight other targets at Brooking.
Two further targets were yet to be drilled, with an additional three targets identified from the geophysical data, it said.
Lucapa said that although the trench sampling results indicate the Little Spring Creek lamproite body was unlikely to be economic, the Brooking project had been proven to host source rocks with extremely high numbers of diamonds. 
“The primary sources of anomalous levels of diamonds and indicator minerals recovered from other distinct target areas within the Brooking project remain undiscovered,” it said.
“For these reasons, Lucapa believes the Brooking project remains prospective for diamondiferous lamproite discoveries.”
Lucapa also has mining operations in Angola and Lesotho.
