Lucara Diamond Corp., a Canadian mining company, is one of the world’s foremost producers of large, high quality, Type IIA diamonds in excess of 10.8 carats.
Since commencing production in Botswana in 2012, Lucara’s 100% owned Karowe mine has sold 170 diamonds for more than $1 million each and 10 single diamonds for more than $10 million each, including the historic 1,109 carat Lesedi La Rona, the second largest gem diamond ever recovered, and the 813 carat Constellation which sold for a record US$63.1 million.
Karowe, a technologically advanced, state-of-the art mine, has current resources to support open pit mining until 2026 and feasibility work is underway to assess the potential for expanding the mine underground, extending mine-life until at least 2036.
Lucara also owns a 100% interest in Clara Diamond Solutions, a digital sales platform that uses proprietary analytics together with cloud and blockchain technologies to transform the sales process, matching diamond demand to supply, ensuring diamond provenance from mine to finger.
