Lucapa Diamond Company Limited notes the recent declaration of a National State of Emergency by the President of the Republic of Angola, His Excellency Joao Lourenco, as one of the measures to prevent and combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The National State of Emergency, which will be in force until 11 April 2020 and may be renewed, will extend to the entire national territory and is in line with the World Health Organization recommendations.

The lockdown measures outlined in the Presidential Decree do allow certain industrial activities to continue, including mining. However, in the interests of ensuring the health and safety of staff, the activities on the concession have been reduced to essential operations with camp-based staff until the authorities advise otherwise or National State of Emergency is lifted.

The Company will provide further updates accordingly
