Canadian headquartered Lucara Diamond Corp has recovered a 692.3 ct white gem-quality diamond at its Karowe mine, inĀ Botswana.

The diamond is the fourth diamond weighing more than 300 ct to be recovered at Karowe this year and follows the recovery of a 1 080 ct Type IIa diamond earlier this month.

“This is the twentieth diamond larger than 100 ct recovered, during 2023, at Karowe. The recovery of large diamonds from the EM/PK(S) lithology of the South Lobe strongly supports our expectations for the underground project where the majority of material mined will constitute this phase of kimberlite during the first years of underground production,” Lucara CEO William Lamb says.
