The precious stone, which is being said by the company to be the largest, was recovered by the new XRT machines installed at the Karowe mine. They also recovered a 255 carat. The quality of the stones will be assessed only once they have been cleaned.
As William Lamb, President and CEO, says, “The recovery of the 348 carat diamond from the high-value south lobe is the largest stone recovered from the Karowe mine to date. We are very pleased with the current operation of the newly installed XRT equipment and the continued recovery of our exceptional diamonds.”
