Lucapa eyes A$5.7mln to expand Angola kimberlite exploration programme

31 october 2012

Lucapa Diamond, formerly Lonrho Mining, said it will raise A$5.7 million ($5.9 million) to expand its kimberlite exploration programme at the Lulo diamond concession, in Angola.
It said in a statement that funds would be raised through a pro-rata non-renounceable entitlement issue to existing shareholders of one share priced at A$0.009 each for every four shares held.
Lucapa commenced drilling at Lulo last month following the recovery of a 131 carat diamond, which had many features of a rare Type IIa diamond.
The stone was valued at $3.5 million by Independent Diamond Valuers.
Lucapa said it would now carry out a low-level aeromagnetic survey, which includes a 725 square kilometre strip.
The survey, it said, was expected to increase the number of priority kimberlite to be drill tested.
