BlueRock Diamonds PLC announced Monday that it has recovered a 58.6-carat diamond at its Kareevlei diamond mine in South Africa.
The London-listed diamond producer said the find followed the recovery of a 21.6-carat stone last week.
The company said it expects to see significant sales value since it is a “D” color stone, meaning it is colorless with black sulfide intrusions. It was said that the stone would be sold in the August tender.
“This is a very important discovery for BlueRock as it supports the ‘size frequency distribution charts’ which suggest our tubes are delivering large high quality diamonds along with the much sought after ‘Run of Mine’ diamond package with assured values in excess of $ 400 will be per carat in 2021, “the company announced.
