Lonhro in ASX trading halt, to update market on Angola diamonds

06 september 2012

Lonrho Mining has been granted an ASX trading halt as it prepares to update the market of an independent evaluation of diamonds recently recovered from the Lulo project, in Angola.
It said in a statement that the halt would last until the earlier of an announcement being made to the market, or the opening of trade on Friday 7th September.
Lonrho Mining uncovered late last month a 131.5-carat gem quality white diamond at Lulo, along with a 38.3-carat diamond.
“The recovery of such a spectacular 131.5-carat diamond in particular highlights both the prospectivity of the diamondiferous gravels in the Cacuilo River valley and, more significantly, the kimberlite pipe that has shed this stone,” Lonrho managing director Miles Kennedy said then.
“Given the incredible size of this diamond, there is little doubt the kimberlite source is very close by.”
The Lulo project was operated as a joint venture between Lonrho and the Angolan government-owned Endiama.
