It is also the fourth largest diamond recovered to date since activities began at Lulo.  
“The recovery of this 171 carat gem-quality white diamond continues to underpin the potential of the kimberlite exploration programme as drilling of the high-priority kimberlites in the Canguige catchment continues,” said company managing director Stephen Wetherall.
The 171 carat white diamond was recovered from Mining Block 6 as scaled mining operations recommenced at Lulo. 
Mining Block 6 has now produced 6 +100 carat diamonds.
