Lucara to Hold First Exceptional Stone Tender of '15

Gaborone: Lucara Diamond Corp. has announced its first Exceptional Stone Tender of 2015. Viewing will take place in Gaborone from July 6 until July 16.

The tender will be lead by the sale of the 342-carat diamond, recovered from the Karowe Mine in April last year. The company said that up to 16 diamonds will be sold on tender, including up to six diamonds larger than 100 carats.

Lucara recently announced that it is selling its 75-percent interest in the Mothae diamond project in Lesotho to Paragon Diamonds for $8.5 million in cash.
