Lucara Diamond Corp. is a new diamond producer. It’s key asset is the Karowe Mine in Botswana. The 100% owned Karowe Mine is a newly constructed state-of-the-art mine which was fully commissioned in Q2 2012 . The Karowe Mine is a large scale asset with tonnage and throughput upside and production has consistently included large, Type IIA stones. Lucara is a member of the Lundin Group of Companies.
The mine is called “Karowe” which means precious stone in the local language. The mine was completed in 2012 on time and within a budget of US$120 million. It is a state-of-the-art operation comprising an open pit mine, crushers, AG mill and a XRT, DMS and XRF recovery plant. The mine has an annual production of approximately 380,000 carats of gem quality (including Type IIa) diamonds which are sold through regularly scheduled tenders throughout the year. Of importance, in addition to its regular diamond production, the Karowe mine has been producing some very large, exceptionally high quality diamonds (including some coloured stones). These exceptional stones are sold by special tender as recovery dictates.
