Die Aktie von Lucapa Diamond (ASX: LOM und WKN A0M6U8) hat in der letzten Woche bereits gewaltige Kurssprünge hingelegt. Von 0,175 AUD ging es auf mittlerweile 0,42 AUD nach oben! Und zwar unter sehr hohem Handelsvolumen.

Lucapa produziert auf dem Lulo-Projekt in Angola schon seit einiger Zeit erfolgreich alluviale Diamanten und will die Abbaurate dabei bis Ende des Monats auf 20.000 Kubikmeter pro Monat verdoppeln. Dabei findet LOM immer wieder außergewöhnlich große und wertvolle Steine, sodass der durchschnittlich erzielte Verkaufspreis mehr als nur deutlich über dem Marktdurchschnitt liegt.

Zuletzt haben sich die Funde dieser außergewöhnlichen Steine beschleunigt, sie finden jetzt mit einer Rate von rund 1 solchem Diamanten pro Tag statt (!).

Was zum zweiten Punkt führt: Lucapa ist neben der Produktion der alluvialen Diamanten natürlich auf der Suche nach deren Quelle, d.h. einem Kimberlit, in dem diese gehäuft auftreten und wo sich eventuell die Errichtung einer Mine lohnen würde.

Die zuletzt außergewöhnlich hohe Zahl an Diamanten mit mehr als 10,8 Karat und das Auftreten von "Indikatormineralien" - so heißt das glaube ich - auf der Abbauzone Block 8 hat dazu geführt, dass man einen nahe dieses Gebiets gelegenen Kimberlitschlot für die mögliche Quelle hält.

Zuletzt sagte Lucapas Chairman Miles Kennedy Anlegern auf der "Resources Rising Stars": „Was immer Sie auch nächste Woche sonst machen, Sie sollten Lucapa genau im Blick behalten. Es könnte sich hier um den reichsten, wertvollsten Diamantschlot der Welt handeln. Falls dass der Schlot ist, der die Diamanten absondert, die wir in 500 Meter Entfernung finden, dann halten Sie sich besser gut fest.“ (die deutsche Übersetzung hab ich hier kopiert: http://www.goldinvest.de/index.php/lucapa-diamond-spekulatio…)

Was wohl der Auslöser für die Kursexplosion der letzten Tage war. Die dürfte allerdings nur ein kleiner Vorgeschmack dessen sein, was mit der Aktie passiert, falls Lucapa diese Woche tatsächlich den Fund der Diamantquelle meldet!

ABER: Eine Diamantquelle zu finden, die auch tatsächlich über die Qualitäten verfügt, zu einer Mine ausgebaut zu werden, ist erheblich schwieriger, als zB eine Goldmine zu entdecken. Ein Treffer wäre also so etwas wie ein Sechser im Lotto für Lucapa. Die Chancen stehen m.E. gut, aber eine Garantie gibt es nicht und die Aktie dürfte einen Großteil der Gewinne wieder abgeben, sollte kein Treffer gemeldet werden.

Andererseits verfügt Lucapa über eine Menge weiterer Kimberlitziele auf Lulo und produziert wie gesagt schon mit großem Erfolg, sodass die Firma auch bei einem ersten Misserfolg bei der Quellensuche nicht mit leeren Händen dastehen würde.

Leider ist der Zug jetzt vermutlich mal abgefahren, oder seid ihr der Meinung, das da noch Luft nach oben ist? sehr spekulativ vermutlich....

Wenn die da eine Kimberlitquelle finden sollten, wenn auch nicht diese Woche und diese Quelle sollte der Lieferant dieser seltenen Steine sein , dann ist das erst der Anfang. Aber das ist nur meine Meinung.
Avatar
05.10.15 09:39:09
sicher hat die Aktie schon ziemlich zugelegt in letzter Zeit, auch wenn sie heute ein Stück wieder abgegeben hat.

Die Frage ist halt: Weshalb würdest du die Aktie kaufen? Wegen der alluvialen Produktion? Dann würd ich sagen, müsste man warten, bis der Kurs wieder mehr zurückgekommen ist. Oder wegen der Aussicht auf den Fund der Quelle der Diamanten auf dem Projekt? Dann könnte man - das ist jetzt absolut keine Empfehlung oder so etwas - m.E. immer noch kaufen. Denn wenn sie da wirklich nen Treffer landen, dann wird es IMHO bestimmt noch deutlich höher gehen. Wenn allerdings nicht kann man dann mit Sicherheit wieder viel günstiger einsteigen.


Wie gesagt: Keine Empfehlung für irgendwas!

Guten Morgen brettonwoods,

bin heute morgen mit einer kleinen Position in Australien eingestiegen ($AUS 0,235).
Ich denke, wir haben für die nächsten 3-4 Monate eine relativ gute Absicherung nach unten hin (mehr als 30% Spielraum sehe ich da für diesen Zeitraum eigentlich nicht). Nach oben ist viel möglich, wenn auch in den nächsten Wochen eher nicht (Ich denke die News sind jetzt erstmal raus.).
Mitte Januar wird es spannend und dann könnte es mit viel Glück sehr schnell und sehr weit nach oben gehen.
Fazit: Ein kalkulierbarer Zock
Dir vielen Dank für das Zusammenstellen der Infos in diesem Thread. Das hat das Einlesen erleichtert.

Ist in Angola eigentlich über die Feiertage gearbeitet worden? Die herausragenden Funde haben zwar viele Zocker ins Boot gespielt, die schmeißen aber auch schnell wieder, wenn die Erfolge nicht bestätigt werden.

133.4 CARAT DIAMOND RECOVERED AT LULO

133.4 carat diamond recovered from initial processing of new gravels from Mining Block 6 – the
largest diamond recovered to date at Lulo
Two D-colour gems weighing 29.2 carats and 11.1 carats among other large special diamonds
recovered fromMining Block 6
Previous exploration bulk sampling in the Mining Block 6 area produced large special diamonds
weighing 95.5 carats, 53.2 carats, 32.2 carats, 24.5 carats, 13.7 carats and 10.9 carats
Mining and processing of gravels from Mining Block 6 is planned to continue throughout the
Angolan wet season and beyond
Mining Block 6 is just 4km from the diamond plant and ~2km downstream of Mining Block 8,
where Lucapa has been recovering large valuable Diamonds
Size and compound nature of the 133.4 carat diamond points to a close primary source, reinforcing Lucapa`s Focus on ist high priority Kimberlite Targets

22.01.16 11:07:08
Goldinvest heute zu den News:

http://www.goldinvest.de/index.php/lucapa-diamond-entdeckt-d…

Hier in Auszügen:
Der 133,4karätige Diamant ist zwar nicht von so hoher Qualität, doch zeigt er, zusammen mit den drei anderen neuen, speziellen Steinen, dass Lucapa mit Block 6 nach Block 8 eine weitere, signifikante Quelle großer alluvialer Diamanten aufgetan haben könnte.
Und Block 6 wäre auf Grund seiner höheren Lage auch währender Regenzeit in Angola erreichbar, sodass der Abbau in dieser Zeit fortgesetzt werden könnte.
Und Herr Wetherall weist darauf hin, dass die Tatsache, dass der 133,4-karätige Stein ein Verbunddiamant ist, der wahrscheinlich nicht sehr weit von seiner primären Quelle entfernt gefunden wurde, sehr signifikant ist, zumal er auch nicht weit von Block 8 entdeckt wurde, in dessen Nähe Lucapa die Kimberlit-Quelle der bislang dort gefundenen, außergewöhnlichen Steine vermutet.
Unserer Ansicht nach verdeutlicht die heutige Meldung einmal mehr, auf welcher soliden Basis Lucapa steht, während das Unternehmen unserer Meinung nach gleichzeitig über gewaltiges Aufwärtspotenzial verfügt.

Diamonds to double production in three years​


27 January 2016

Angola can double diamond production in the next three years, with the start of new projects, announced yesterday the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Diamond Company (Endiama), in an interview yesterday with UN Radio in New York.

Sumbula defended the need to keep a large supply causing the reduction of mineral prices. Angola in 2015 produced 8.837 million carats of diamonds, a record amount, which earned the country a revenue of 1107 million dollars, against 1.3 billion dollars in the previous year.

In the annual report, the minister of Geology and mines, Francisco Queirós, considered positive sector performance in 2015, at a time when the prices of raw materials recorded a significant drop in the international market.

"There is still one and a half discovered kimberlite of world caliber. This means that within two to three years we can double production of diamonds in the country, "said Carlos Sumbula defending a marketing international agreement to balance the market.

Negotiations at the moment involve major world diamond producers like Africa South, Australia and Botswana. With nine million carats of mineral extracted last year, Angola is the third largest producer of diamonds. Sumbula considered positive relationships in the sector with Portuguese-speaking countries, strengthened in 2015, when Angola chaired the Kimberley Process to certify the export of diamonds.
The performance of Angola ahead of the organization, especially in implementing the program to combat illicit trade in diamonds.

"At this point all actions and documents required for Mozambique is part of the Kimberley Process have been launched and are being treated. With regard to Brazil, we cooperate in various fields, "he said.
With the performance of Angola, since the creation in 2002 of the Kimberley Process, 99 percent of diamonds are now exported to the certification mechanism of control thus preventing the precious gems used to finance armed conflicts and terrorist acts. Above expectations Diamond production in Angola last year, exceeded the target set in the National Development Plan (NDP) magazine, reaching 103 percent put in perspective by the Government.

Regarding the ornamental rocks, there was a production of 39,533 cubic meters of natural stone as a whole, which represents a fulfillment of 71.4 percent of 55,000 cubic meters envisaged in the National Development Plan. "The value of these ornamental stones was 8,358 million dollars. The National Development Plan provided 6.626 million dollars, which represents a fulfillment of 126 percent, "said the minister of Geology and Mine. Regarding inert, total production was 4,508,828 cubic meters, representing an achievement of 129 per cent over the goals of the National Development Plan.

"We are in the presence of a year in terms of production, was very positive for the executive," said Francisco Queirós.The licensing plan and registration, the sector registered the issuance of 33 licenses, 21 of which for the production of ornamental and inert, three for diamonds and for gold, generating 120 million kwanzas for the State coffers."It's information that seems quite positive, although the amount is small in budgetary terms, but it is a very positive sign, because it is the first time we managed to achieve this value, thanks to the collection of labor fees and charges that have been made a systematic, transparent and rigorously, "he stressed.

The minister of Geology and Mining ensured that some projects approved in 2015, can become operational by the end of this year and 2017 principles, an investment of about 2.5 billion dollars over five years. In total, will generate about 3,500 direct jobs in that period. These are the diamond's Luachi projects in the province of Lunda Sul, three for the production of iron in the province of Kuando Kubango and Kwanza Norte, copper production in the province of Uige, phosphate in Zaire and Cabinda, and gold in Huila province.

Nun wird es aber wirklich spannend:

Lucapa macht eine Voluntary Suspension. Es gibt wohl eine gemeinsame Veröffentlich von allen Partnern an dem Projekt , auch der Angolan National Diamond Company. Thema wird wohl ein Diamond Update sein.
http://www.asx.com.au/asxpdf/20160209/pdf/434xmvz47ybvdn.pdf

Ich denke, sie haben was wirklich großes gefunden, wahrscheinlich einen richtig großen Diamanten.
Für die Funde der über 100 Karat Diamanten der letzten Wochen gab es kein Trading Halt. Sollte es wirklich ein Diamantenfund sein dürfte der um einiges größer sein.

Der Grund für die Aussetzung ist also doch der Fund eines riesigen Diamanden. 404 Karat - der größte, der je in Angola gefunden worden ist. Und: Die Qualität ist hervorragend!
Erstaunlicher Weise in Block 8, ich hätte eher auf Block 6 getippt.
Der Kurs ist deutlich gestiegen, so um die 30%.

dazu Goldinvest:

https://bjoernjunker.wordpress.com/2016/02/15/sensationsfund…

Das ist im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes eine Sensation: Wie von uns spekuliert, hat der australische Diamantproduzent Lucapa Diamond Company (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) auf seinem Lulo-Projekt in Angola einen außergewöhnlich großen Diamanten entdeckt. Und zwar den größten Diamanten, der jemals in dem afrikanischen Land aufgefunden wurde!

Der jetzt von Lucapa entdeckte Diamant ist mit seinen 404,2 Karat zudem der 27igst größte Diamant der Welt!

Bei dem außergewöhnlichen Stein handelt es sich zudem um einen Schmuckstein des Typs IIa (D colour), eine der seltensten und wertvollsten Art von Diamant überhaupt! Der zuvor größte, in Angola entdeckte Stein – der so genannte Angolan Star –, hatte ein Gewicht von „nur“ 217,4 Karat und wurde 2007 gefunden.

Der Sensationsfund wurde auf dem Abbaugebiet Block 8 von Lucapas Lulo-Projekt gemacht, auf dem das Unternehmen insgesamt nun 114 außergewöhnlich große Diamanten (>10,8 Karat) entdeckt hat. Es ist der vierte Diamant mit mehr als 100 Karat, der bislang auf Lulo gefunden wurde. Der bislang größte Stein war dabei 133,4 Karat schwer.

Der 404karätige Diamant von Block 8; Foto: Lucapa Diamond

Lucapa betreibt das Lulo- Projekt in Partnerschaft mit der staatlichen Endiama und der privaten Rosas & Petalas. Lucapa ist der Betreiber des Projekts und besitzt eine 40%ige Beteiligung am alluvialen Diamantenabbaubetrieb. Endiama hält eine 32%ige Beteiligung, während Rosas & Petalas 28% besitzt.

Das Unternehmen hatte den alluvialen Diamantabbau auf Lulo 2015 aufgenommen und seitdem Diamanten im Wert von fast 20 Mio. AUD verkauft. Gleichzeitig treibt man die Suche nach der primären Kimberlitquelle dieser Steine voran, wobei man ein potenzielles Zielgebiet bereits abgegrenzt und dort erste Untersuchungen durchgeführt hat.

Antonio Carlos Sumbula, Chairman von Lucapas Partner Endiama, erklärte, dass der Fund des 404,2-karätigen Diamanten einen weiteren Meilenstein im Wachstum und der Entwicklung der angolanischen Diamantenbergbaubranche darstelle:

„Wir sind hocherfreut, dass wir den größten Diamanten entdeckt haben, der jemals in Angola gefunden wurde. Dies ist ein bedeutender Tag für unser Land, unsere Diamantenindustrie und für das Diamantenprojekt Lulo“, betonte Carlos Sumbula.

Und natürlich auch für Lucapa! Das sieht man schon an der Reaktion der Aktie in Australien. Dort schoss das Papier um fast 30% in die Höhe bei mehr als 15,5 Mio. gehandelten Aktien!

Hallo brettonwoods,

natürlich bin ich noch hier, freue mich aber still, heimlich und leise.
Ich bin mir sehr sicher, dass Lucapa mittelfristig die Quelle der Diamanten finden wird und dann wird der Kurs schnell explodieren oder wir werden aufgekauft. Ich glaube aber auch, dass der Kurs anschließend wieder deutlich zurück kommen wird, da die Errichtung einer richtigen Miene mit viel Unsicherheit und hohen Kosten verbunden ist.
Oben habe ich bewusst geschrieben, dass ich mittelfristig mit einem Ergebnis Richtung Quelle rechne. Damit habe ich eine andere Einschätzung als viele Nutzer im Hotcopper-Forum, die nahezu täglich mit Resultaten rechnen.
Es gibt zwar gewichtige Hinweise auf L259, aber zum Finden der Quelle gehört auch Glück dazu. Es kann schnell gehen, meist muss Glück jedoch erarbeitet werden und das dauert dann halt auch.

Ich freue mich auf die nächsten Monate und bin gutes Mutes, hier eine deutliches Plus zu machen.

28.02.16 12:47:28
Eine interessante Info von ecat88 aus dem Hotcopper-Forum. Vielleicht der kompetenteste Poster dort:

According to Angolan law, all diamonds must be marketed through the state-owned diamond marketing company SODIAM.
The diamonds are presented to SODIAM. When a company wants to sell its diamonds, SODIAM invites its buyers to view the goods in Luanda and make an offer. However, if the producer wants to sell its diamonds sooner, SODIAM may even act as a buyer.
In a regular sale, SODIAM takes a 5 percent marketing commission and Angola receives another 5 percent diamond royalty. In the case where SODIAM is the actual buyer, a price is negotiated with the producers and SODIAM takes possession of the stones.

Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (ASX: LOM) (“Lucapa”), Endiama E.P (“Endiama”), Angola’s national diamond mining company and private local partner Rosas & Petalas are pleased to announce the sale of the 404 carat diamond recovered recently from the Lulo Diamond Project in Angola (See ASX announcement 15 February 2016).
The 404 carat Lulo alluvial diamond sold for gross proceeds of A$22.5 million (US$16 million).
This represents a spectacular average price of A$55,585 (US$39,580) per carat, which is a record price for a white diamond recovered from Lulo and is further evidence of the positive sentiment in the market for large high-quality gems like those being recovered at Lulo.
404 CARAT LULO DIAMOND SELLS FOR A$22.5 MILLION

Lucapa Chief Executive Stephen Wetherall said Lucapa and its partners were delighted to have achieved a record sale price for the 404 carat Lulo diamond.
“The sale of a single diamond for US$16 million underlines the huge potential of the Lulo diamond field to regularly produce gems which are both large and of world-class quality,” said MrWetherall.
“We look to the future with tremendous excitement at Lulo as we continue mining these exceptional alluvial diamond areas, growing our alluvial mining capability and advancing the kimberlite exploration program to locate the primary source or sources of these gems.”

http://www.lucapa.com.au/announcements vom 03. März

weitere Diamantenverkäufe für 9,6 Millionen A$
damit im aktuellen Quartal Verkäufe für 32,5 Millionen A$
auch wenn wir nur 40% bekommen, Geld ist nun vorhanden
Hinzu kommt, dass die verkauften Diamanten in der Regensaison gefördert wurden (also in den klimatisch eher bedenklichen Monaten).
Auch die Diamantenproduktion wird ausgeweitet (war aber bereits angekündigt): Jeweils 20000 bcm/m pro Monat in Block 6 und in Block 8
Die Bohrung in L 259 werden weiter vorbereitet. Ergebnisse hierzu sollen bald vorliegen.

Lucapa Diamond – Ist die nächste Kursexplosion vorgezeichnet?

Geschrieben von Björn Junker • 3. März 2016 • Druckversion

Die Erfolgsserie der australischen Lucapa Diamond (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) reißt nicht ab. Einmal mehr erzielt das Unternehmen sensationell hohe Durchschnittspreise für die Diamanten von seinem Lulo-Projekt in Angola. Die alluviale Diamantproduktion zeigt sich zudem äußerst ergiebig, obwohl die Regenzeit die Arbeiten stark einschränkt. Und die nächste, mögliche Kursexplosion rückt immer näher…
Lucapa meldet nämlich, dass man weitere Diamanten von Lulo mit einem Gesamtgewicht von 1.349 Karat verkaufte und damit einen Bruttoerlös von 9,6 Mio. AUD erzielte. Das bedeutet einen nahezu unglaublich hohen Verkaufspreis von durchschnittlich 7.126 AUD (5.075 USD) pro Karat (!), was einmal mehr die hohe Nachfrage nach großen, qualitativ hochwertigen Diamanten unterstreicht, wie Lucapa sie insbesondere auf den alluvialen Abbaugebieten Block 8 und 6 auf Lulo immer wieder entdeckt.

Mit diesem neuesten Verkauf hat Lucapa zusammen mit seinen Partnern nun allein im Märzquartal einen Bruttoerlös von 32,5 Mio. AUD aus dem Verkauf von Lulo-Diamanten erzielt. Darin eingeschlossen war der 404karätige Rekorddiamant, den das Unternehmen für 22,5 Mio. AUD verkaufen konnte. Seit Beginn der Arbeiten auf Lulo – Exploration und Abbau – haben die Projektpartner nun alluviale Diamanten mit einem Gesamtgewicht von 12.125 Karat verkauft, und damit brutto 51,3 Mio. AUD erlöst. Durchschnittlich kostet ein Karat eines Lulo-Diamanten damit 4.233 AUD oder 3.147 USD. Zum Vergleich: Der Durchschnittspreis pro Karat weltweit wird, je nach Quelle auf 120 bzw. 200 bis 400 USD pro Karat geschätzt…

Und wie oben schon erwähnt stammen die Diamanten, die Lucapa im Märzquartal bisher verkauft hat, alle aus dem alluvialen Abbau während der Regenzeit in Angola. Das heißt, der Zugang zu den Abbaugebieten Block 8 und Block 6, wo besonders viele, besonders wertvolle Diamanten gefunden werden, war und ist durch schwere Regenfälle stark eingeschränkt. Das bedeutet, wenn die Regenzeit wie üblich im April endete, kann Lucapa den Abbau je nach Bodenbedingungen wieder auf 20.000 Kubikmeter pro Monat hochfahren, sodass mit noch besseren Ergebnissen zu rechnen ist!

Was wiederum zeigt, dass Lucapa mit der alluvialen Diamantproduktion bereits über eine mehr als nur robuste Basis verfügt, die unserer Ansicht nach – bei allen sicher vorhandenen Risiken – eine Investition schon lohnend machen könnte. Das noch einmal erhebliche größere Potenzial für Unternehmen und Aktie ist unserer Ansicht nach aber in der Kimberlitexploration zu finden, der Suche nach der Ursprungsquelle all der außergewöhnlichen Steine, die Lucapa insbesondere auf Block8 und Block 6 findet!

Und da kommt Lucapa der Entscheidung immer näher, ob man womöglich wirklich eine Kimberlitstruktur gefunden hat, die über ausreichend Potenzial verfügt, um den Bau einer Diamantmine zu rechtfertigen. Denn das Unternehmen hat auf Lulo mit Gravitätsmessungen bereits eine 110 Hektar große Kimberlitstruktur (L259) entdeckt, die quasi direkt unter Abbaugebiet Block 8 liegt.

Und der nächste Schritt zur genaueren Erkundung und Bestimmung der unterirdischen Geologie von L259 wurde mit einer Elektromagnetikuntersuchung (EM) nun bereits abgeschlossen. Lucapa geht davon aus, die abschließenden Ergebnisse, Interpretation und vorläufige Modellierung der EM-Untersuchung schon in den nächsten Tagen zu erhalten und wird den Markt natürlich entsprechend informieren.

Das heißt, wir haben in Lucapa Diamond ein Unternehmen, das mit seiner alluvialen Diamantproduktion auf einer sehr soliden Basis steht, die in Zukunft auch noch erheblich ausgeweitet werden könnte. Und gleichzeitig verfügt das Unternehmen über gewaltiges Blue Sky-Potenzial durch seine Kimberlitexploration.

Denn die Bestätigung, dass eine mögliche, neue Diamantmine entdeckt wurde, würde die Aktie, glauben wir, explosionsartig nach oben treiben. Insofern sind wir der Ansicht, dass Anleger, die sich des Risikos bewusst sind und darauf spekulieren, dass Lucapa Diamond tatsächlich die nächste, neue Diamantmine entdeckt, eher früher als später einsteigen sollten, um den Run – wenn er denn kommt – nicht zu verpassen.

Mal wieder ein gutes (da die Zusammenhänge erklärendes) Posting im hotcopper-Foprum von ecat88. Die EM-Resultate solle demnächst kommen:

The EM results are there to assist in determining the depth of the kimberlite layers, in particular the depth of the Pyroclastic Kimberlite (PK).

The gravity survey has already outlined the outer rim of the kimberlite where the PK should be at its shallowest. However, as it is a huge kimberlite, the outer rim circumference is quite large and there is variability in PK depth along the outer rim.

This is where the EM results come in.
The EM will determine which parts of the outer rim likely host the shallowest PK. It will act as a preliminary depth finder. This will produce drill targets for the delineation drilling of the PK. The drilling will confirm the depth of the PK and identify areas where it is suitable for bulk sampling. After the good areas are found, they will set up several excavation sites along the outer rim and take bulk samples which will be sent to the DMS for diamond testing.

KIMBERLITE DRILLING TARGETS DEFINED AT HIGH PRIORITY L259
- Systematicel ectromagnetic and gravity surveys, combined with geological pitting
programs, have successfully defined target areas for upcoming kimberlite drilling
program at the high-priorityL 259
HIGHLIGHTS
Geophysical survey results from the high-priority L259 have modelled a 78-108 hectare body which is consistent with the weathered near-surface expression of a kimberlite, or its crater
The electro magnetic (EM ) survey results show a strong correlation with the recent gravity survey results from L259, indicating that both are mapping the same body
EM and gravity results also correlate well with the geological pitting that identified kimberlite material atL 259
These systematic geoph sical and geological work program shave successfully defined the target areas for the upcoming drilling program at L259

Der Kurs ist erstmal um etwa 8% eingebrochen, da die Ergebnisse nicht so eindeutig ausfallen, wie von vielen erhofft. Sie lassen noch viele Fragen offen und bestätigen nicht, dass L259 die Quelle der Diamanten von Block 6 und 8 ist. Sie schließen es aber auch nicht aus!
Nach wie vor bleibt, dass die gefundenen Diamanten von diesen Örtlichkeiten erstaunlich scharfe Kanten aufweisen. Das spricht dafür, dass sie von ihrer Quelle nicht weit transportiert worden sind.

Zur Einordnung der News hier noch mal ein Beitrag von ecat88 aus dem Hotcopper-Forum:

http://hotcopper.com.au/threads/ann-kimberlite-drilling-targ…

The most interesting thing to me is that L259 displayed a gravity low compared to L251 which displayed a gravity high. This supports my theory that the low magnetic, less dense L259 is an older deeply weathered kimberlite which is more likely to be more diamondiferous compared to the younger high magnetic, higher density and less weathered kimberlites such as L251. Mineral Services (lab consultants) have the view that the older kimberlites "sampled more substantial amounts of diamondiferous mantle and hence may contain greater quantities of diamond" (21 December 2015 announcement). Note that it was the older kimberlites like L259 that eroded and contributed to the diamond-rich Calonda formations, not the younger ones which are more preserved. The results also suggest that the L259 kimberlite is softer which improves suitability for bulk processing at the DMS plant.

Und noch mal ecat88 aus hotcopper zur Einordnung, was gerade hinsichtlich L259 passiert und vor allem was nicht passiert:

The geophysical survey modelling estimates that the top 35-100 metres of L259 is low-density (softer). I interpret this as the top 100 metres being layers of sediment overburden, Resedimented Volcaniclastic Kimberlite (RVK), and low-density weathered Pyroclastic Kimberlite (PK). Deeper than 100 metres, you will start hitting the harder and denser unweathered kimberlite. Previous trenching of the area showed the RVK to be around 6-10 metres deep. Unlike L251, the EM results of kimberlite L259 showed that the majority of the RVK was in the central areas. This suggests to me that the shallower outer rim RVK has been eroded and washed away. This is a good sign as weathering and erosion are the processes for a kimberlite to release its diamonds. But it also means that some of the prospective bulk sampling areas are still affected by the wet season though there are still some areas they can start drilling on the outer rim which sits higher.

The landcruiser drill rig is rather lightweight in terms of drill rigs so it will be used more for reconnaissance sampling of the shallow geology structures. This is fine as the top 100 metres of L259 is low-density as previously mentioned so this drill-rig is fit for purpose. It will have two types of kimberlite drilling roles.

The first is delineation drilling to identify any shallow areas of PK that are suitable for bulk sampling. The shallower the better. If they can find a shallow outcrop of PK, they can start the bulk sampling fairly quickly. The EM has already identified some good drill targets.

The second is to take research core samples to be taken to the lab for micro-probing analysis. This is important as they are trying to gain as much data on this kimbo as possible. L259 is huge so by taking samples from various points, they will be able to get a better idea of which parts are more prospective for diamonds. They will compare the lab results from the various sample points and look for indicators such as the presence of micro-diamonds and G10D garnets which identify which sections of kimberlite were derived from the diamond-stability zone of the mantle.

All this scheduled to start April so not too far away. After they have gathered the required shallow geology data and done their interpretation, they will probably hire heavier drill gear to test the deeper sections of L259. The lightweight landcruiser drill rig can then be used to help with the resource extension work of the alluvial fields so I believe it is an excellent investment.

http://hotcopper.com.au/threads/ann-kimberlite-drilling-targ…


1S1, the results said the thickness (not the depth) of the low density zone was estimated between 35 and 100 metres. There was no suggestion that the PK was 35 metres deep minimum. RVK was around 6-10 metres deep in the central zone so I think there is a chance of shallow kimberlite in the outer areas. EM is only an interpretation, drilling will tell you the real deal so we need to wait for that. Shallow delineation drilling on a low density target can be done rapidly so they can cover a lot of ground.

The chances for a short-term price spike is more likely to come from gazetting which I suspect will be finalized in April as the kimberlite exploration licence is due for renewal in May. Don't underestimate MK, he is a wily old fox and I'm sure he has an Ace up his sleeve to play in April to maximise LOMOB conversions.

68.1 CARAT GEM QUALITY DIAMOND RECOVERED FROM
TRIAL MINING IN NEWAREA AT LULO

- Latest large special diamond recoveries at E46 are ~10km from the mining area which
produced gems of up to 404 carats, providing further evidence that Lulo is in the heart of
a large diamond province
Key Points
 68.1 carat Type IIA D-colour gem among eight special diamonds recovered from recent trial
mining of E46 alluvial terraces at Lulo
 Lucapa and its partners have now identified four areas spanning ~20km known to produce
large valuable alluvial diamonds – Mining Blocks 6, 8 and 31 and E46 alluvial terraces
 E46 is ~10km upstream from alluvial Mining Blocks 8 and 6, which have produced special
diamonds regularly including the biggest diamond ever recorded in Angola (404 carats)
 The latest E46 special recoveries in the middle of the Lulo mining licence increase
management’s confidence that the large valuable diamonds should continue to be
recovered along the 51kmstretch of the Cacuilo River

Funde, die Fragen aufwerfen:
Haben diese neuen Diamanten die gleiche Quelle?
Kann die dann noch L259 sein (eher nicht)?
Was lässt sich alleine alluvial auf dem Gebietz von Lucapa alles finden?
Erstaunlich und höchst ungegewöhnlich.
Erfreulich aber auch noch mal komplexer als erhofft.

http://hotcopper.com.au/threads/lucupa-pro-opinions.2739973/…


There are diamonds on the concession. LOM is not only searching for diamonds but there were already significant findings of diamonds on the LULO concession.

Found diamonds are of extreme high quality and value. There is an extraordinary high share of gem-quality diamonds. There is an extraordinary high share of special diamonds >10,8ct. There is an extraordinary high share of type IIa diamonds in perfect quality. In the meantime it is nearly “normal” to find diamonds with more than 100ct in top quality. With the finding of the 404 ct. type IIa diamond LOM found an extraordinary diamond, similar or even bigger findings seem to be possible. Average price per carat for 2015 sales is 1.370AUD/ct with significantly increasing tendency in Q4 2015 and Q1 2016.

Strong indication for source of diamonds close to mining block 8. Indicator minerals as well as the character and consistency of the diamonds found on block 8 most likely point to a source of diamonds being only a few hundred meters up to 1.5km away from the place where diamonds were found. As mining bloc 8 is directly “sitting” on L259, maybe the diamonds are just washed away from one end of L259 to the other end.

Top priority target L259. L259 is a confirmed kimberlite directly under mining block 8. If you look on google maps you can see that the garimperos directly started to dig at the south-western border of L259 and from there they digged the whole river downwards. Did already the garimperos sit on the source? Can life really be so easy? If L259 is really the source of the alluvial diamonds on block 6 and 8 then the source would be a huge kimberlite, much bigger than most other diamond mines in the world. Overall there is a good chance to build up a very exceptional diamond mine which might become one of the leading mines in the the world (some very optimistic people even say .most valuable mine in the world)

Multiple chances. LOM has several chances to “win the jackpot”. L259 is a possible source for diamonds on mining block 6 and 8. L46 might be the source of the diamonds on the alluvial terraces E46. Until now only some kimberlites around Cacuilo river are examined. Kimberlites at Lulo river are not yet touched. LOM has got an exploration licence in Botswana. So there are several chances. Maybe it is even possible to win the jackpot twice or three times.

High potential for share price as soon as economic kimberlite is confirmed. In case that an economic kimberlite is confirmed the share price does not reflect this. So if such confirmation is made there is significant potential for the share price.

Management experience and skills. Top management of LOM is staffed with very experienced persons coming from big mining and diamond companies. So the management knows the business and has a lot of experience how to start such an enterprise.

There is a well-thought plan that will be followed. There is a systematic and well-thought approach of how to do the exploration and the ramp up of the mining. The steps will be announced and as far as I can judge will be followed without big surprises.

Constant revenues by alluvial mining. Alluvial mining was started in 2015 and is developing very well. One good mining area after the other is detected. It was generated 12 mill. AUD revenue in 2015, thereof >8 mill. AUD in last quarter. In Q1 2016 the revenue was >30 mill. AUD (mainly caused by the maybe exceptional finding of an 404 ct. diamond but also 9 mill. AUD from other diamonds). If I project this for the future I assume a yearly revenue between 30 mill. AUD and 120 mill. AUD. If production capacity will be doubled as announced this means yearly revenue from alluvial mining between 60 mill. AUD and 240. mill. AUD p.a. This limits the risk for the share price as well as provides significant cash flow for kimberlite exploration.

Huge number of kimberlites. Lucapa has identified nearly 300 potential kimberlite targets. I have read that in average every 100th kimberlite is an economic pipe. Just as a statistic average this would mean 3 economic pipes on LOMs concession.

Already confirmed diamondiferous kimberlites. There are already five confirmed diamondiferous kimberlites on the concession. Ok, one confirmation is just based on the finding of a micro diamond.

Good geological situation. Well I am not an expert but what I have read is that it might be that LOM is sitting on an excellent place to find diamonds.

Good relation to local authorities. LOM always states the good relations to Angolan government and the joint venture partner Endiama.

Angola tries to attract investors for mining activities, especially for diamond mining. Angola has announced that they will significantly increase their diamond production.

Gazzetting should not be a problem. A lot of people see a big risk resp. see the gazzetting as an important milestone. I don’t understand why. Yes exploration licences will extend this or next month. But why should there be no extension, especially when LOM is progressing so well as they did in the past. Alluvial mining licence is already granted for 35 years. Kimberlite mining licence does not make sense as long as there is no confirmed economic kimberlite. So I don’t see that gazzetting is more than a pro forma action.

Little labor costs. Labor costs in Angola are significantly lower than in Europe, Australia or USA.

Positive prognosis on long term diamond price development. In the next years there are expected decreasing production capacities in diamond mining due to the fact that a lot of mines are finally exploited. This may result in increasing prices for Diamonds.

MORE LARGE SPECIAL DIAMONDS AND PINKS FROM NEWAREA AT LULO
- Latest trial mining recoveries from E46 include 59 carat and 33 carat specials and more pink diamonds

Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (ASX: LOM) (“Lucapa” or “the Company”) and its partners are pleased to announce the recovery of more large specials and fancy-coloured diamonds from trial mining of the E46 alluvial terraces at the Lulo Diamond Project in Angola.
As announced to the ASX on 29 March 2016, Lucapa and its partners recovered eight special diamonds
(individual stones weighing more than 10.8 carats) from trial mining of the E46 alluvial terraces at Lulo,
including a 68 carat Type IIa D-colour gem.
The latest special diamond recoveries from E46 include a 59 carat Type I diamond and a 33 carat Type IIa D colour gem.
In addition, Lucapa and its partners have recovered a number of pink diamonds from E46, including an intense-fancy 0.2 carat pink.
These pink recoveries - together with the 4 carat pink recovered in the original exploration bulk sampling program - suggest the E46 diamond population should include fancy-coloured diamonds as well as large, high-quality gems.
As noted in the ASX announcement of 29 March 2016, E46 is located ~10km usptream of alluvial Mining Blocks 6 and 8 (Figure 1), which have been the source of frequent special diamond recoveries of up to 404 carats.
E46 is the fourth area along a ~20km stretch of the Cacuilo River terraces to have produced special, gemquality diamonds, providing further evidence that Lulo is in the heart of a large diamond province (Figure 1).
E46 is also adjacent to the known diamond-bearing L46 and L19 kimberlites. Lucapa recovered two Type I kimberlite diamonds weighing 1.24 carats in 2015 from preliminary bulk sampling at L46 (See ASX announcement 16 October 2015).

Lucapa Diamond – Neues Diamantabbaugebiet erweist sich als sehr ergiebig

Geschrieben von Björn Junker • 12. April 2016 • Druckversion

Der australische Diamantproduzent Lucapa Diamond (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) hat sich auf seiner Lulo-Konzession in Angola ein weiteres Abbaugebiet erschlossen. Auf den Alluvialterrassen mit der Bezeichnung E46 führt das Unternehmen derzeit einen Testabbau durch – und schon der fördert regelmäßig besonders große und auch farbige Diamanten zutage!
Bereits Ende März hatte Lucapa den Fund von acht speziellen Diamanten (einzelne Steine mit einem Gewicht über 10,8 Karat) gemeldet, darunter auch ein Stein mit 68 Karat von höchster Qualität. Und nun kommen weitere wertvolle Diamanten hinzu, unter anderem ein 59-Karäter vom Typ I sowie ein 33-karätiger Diamant vom besonders wertvollen Typ IIa (D-colour) – also ein Schmuckstein!
Sehr viel versprechend ist auch, dass Lucapa auf E46 zahlreiche rosafarbene Diamanten gefunden hat, darunter ein intensiv rosafarbener 0,2-karätiger Diamant. Diese Funde rosafarbener Diamanten sowie die Entdeckung eines 4-karätigen rosafarbenen Diamanten, während des ursprünglichen Großprobenprogramms deuten darauf hin, dass der gesamte Diamantenbestand farbige Diamanten sowie große Schmucksteine von hoher Qualität enthalten sollte!
Bislang hatte Lucapa sich auf die Abbaugebiete Block 8 und 6 konzentriert, wo man zahlreiche große Diamanten entdeckt hat, darunter auch den mit 404 Karat größten, jemals in Angola gefundenen solchen Edelstein. Und da sich nun auch E46 als Produzent von speziellen Diamanten mit Schmucksteinqualität erwiesen hat, wird immer deutlicher, dass die Lulo-Liegenschaft im Zentrum einer großen Diamantenprovinz liegt.
Und darüber hinaus liegt E46 in unmittelbarer Nähe der bekannten Diamanten führenden Kimberlite L46 und L19, wo man während der Beprobungsphase zwei Typ I Kimberlitdiamanten mit einem Gewicht von 1,24 Karat entdeckte.
Insgesamt zeigt sich also, dass auch E46 zu einem sehr ergiebigen Abbaugebiet für Lucapa werden könnte. Was umso wichtiger wäre, da dieses Gebiet im Gegensatz zu Block 8 und 6 auch während der – derzeit noch vorherrschenden – Regenzeit zugänglich ist.

Bericht zu Lucapa von Bloomberg:


http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-03-17/diamond-hu…


•Lucapa seeks origin of its recent finds, among world's biggest
•Company may look to London investors to fund mining operation
The diamond explorers known for discovering some of the world’s most-valuable gems in recent years, including a 404-carat stone sold last month, say they’re closing in on the source of their finds.

Lucapa Diamond Co., the Perth, Australia-based company that’s unearthed a stream of discoveries sifting through Angola’s gem-rich soil, is using cash from such sales to seek the “kimberlite” diamond-bearing rock where the stones probably originated.

“We’re finding some of the very best diamonds in the world,” Chief Executive Officer Stephen Wetherall said in an interview in London. “It’s telling us there is something big close by.”

Lucapa are currently alluvial miners, combing for diamonds that have been washed out of the kimberlite core. However, about 85 percent of the world’s diamonds are found by directly mining the cores, carrot-shaped pipes formed when violent explosions forced molten rock from the Earth’s mantle up to the surface, carrying a diamond lode.

Tell-Tale Signs
This is what Lucapa is hoping for next. While alluvial gems are easier to mine, it’s hard to tell how long any deposit will last. Hitting kimberlite is where the big money is made.

The CEO and his team say they’re finding tell-tale signs of kimberlite beneath the area they’re currently mining. Using cash from their share of the $16.7 million raised from the 404-carat diamond, the biggest ever found in Angola, the company is bringing in drill rigs and hopes for a better idea of what they have by the end of the second quarter.

Lucapa has also discovered five more gems greater than 50 carats this year.

Discovering kimberlite is no guarantee of success. Of the more than 6,000 such pipes that have been tested in the past 140 years, only 60 have been worthwhile mining, according to De Beers, the former monopolist and still the biggest producer of diamonds. No more then 10 of those have been so-called super deposits, capable of shifting global supply.

Another obstacle is Angola, not always an easy place to operate. De Beers has cut back its operations there, while BHP Billiton Ltd., Petra Diamonds Ltd. and Trans Hex Group Ltd. also surrendered deposits in the past. Producers must sell their stones through Angola’s Sodiam state marketing unit, resulting in discount prices relative to global trading hubs.

Should Lucapa find the conditions it’s seeking, the Australian-listed miner will probably look to London and its mining-investor base to fund the expensive business of building a mine.

“London understands diamonds and London has the pockets,” Wetherall said.

Für mich ein interessaner Beitrag auf Hotcopper! Dieser Hintergrund war mir noch nicht bewusst, klingt zwar eher beunruhigend, sollte man jedoch wissen:


If I was in negotiations with the Angolan Govt I would NOT be drilling kimbo's. If results were good/great/amazing then that gives Govt power in the negotiations as they would then know for sure something good/great/amazing is there. Keep them guessing (just like us) so they want to have more exploration done to find out what's there + try to crank up LOM's share of the Kimbo JV. Best to wait until Kimbo permit is negotiated, done, dusted & signed then drill.

LOM has plenty of $ now as oppies have been converted so no need to ramp up SP as oppie $ are in the bank. LOM needs power at the negotiating table at present. I will not be surprised if no drilling is done until Kimbo permit sorted. So 25th May the 2 year extension of kimo license ends why be spending $ this close to expiry if Angolan Govt is not prepared to extend/renew it. Seems strange the JV Kimbo gazetting is in place but they have not renewed the license yet. Maybe LOM is trying to get the Kimbo JV changed to get a larger share before renewing the license ?

In the meantime, as things dry out, ramp up the cash flow from the alluvials, at least we have a 35 year license for this even if, as far as I know, the gazetting has run out so LOM has no legal status in an alluvial mining JV anymore.

Uncertain times for Kimbo's & alluvials that will come to a head soon one way or the other.

On the ground it is looking great but the paperwork looks a lot dodgy at this point to me.

I would think there will be some SP weakness if the paperwork is not sorted ASAP as there are a lot more shares out there now & there will be plenty of people who have stretched themselves to convert options.

However once the paperwork is in place, there is substantial money in the bank & JV account so it will be a quick ramp up of on the ground operations & SP.

I am looking forward to some answers by the end of May.

Lucapa's Big Push in Angola

Issue 161, May 2016
In the green swamps of Angola, on both banks of the Cacuilo river, an Australian company is digging through gravel beds, pulling out expensive diamonds. Between crocodiles and the occasional flood, Lucapa Diamond Co has been exploring a vast 3,000 sq km concession on Angola's diamond belt for nearly a decade, but in recent months, it appears to have found the motherlode.

Since January last year, Lucapa has dug-up over 12,000 carats, fetching more than A$50m, by pumping gravel through a processing plant, known as alluvial mining. It has also found fancy pink diamonds and Type IIA stones, the rarest type of diamond found.

One 404-carat diamond it recovered in February sold for $16m, putting Lucapa's average prices on par with the world's highest value diamond mines. It was the biggest diamond ever found in Angola and sold within 20 days of coming out of the ground.

“I wanted to sell it,” says chief executive Stephen Wetherall, who previously worked for De Beers. “I want the money in the bank and I want to expedite my development programme. It is of no benefit to us letting it sit in some glass box in New York.”

Lucapa recently doubled its mining rates from 10,000 to 20,000 bulk cubic metres per month and is planning to double them again, but it has to make the most of Angola's dry season, which began in early April, lasting for six to seven months.

The “world really turned for Lucapa”, Wetherall says, when it entered two mining blocks last year, Block 6 and Block 8. Since then, it has dug up over 100 diamonds weighing more than 10 carats each. “We started to recover one special stone for every operational day. There are not many mines out there that will have that hit rate.”

Alluvial stones have boosted the company's cash flow, putting over $20m on its balance sheet, but small-scale production is not what Lucapa's looking for. Wetherall wants to find the original source. “We're not in it for the alluvial returns,” he says, “even though they are very nice. We're in this to find the motherlode.”

The diamonds Lucapa has recovered to date are unusually large, averaging over one carat each, and many have jagged edges. “Big stones don't travel far. If they've got jagged edges that's also an indication that they haven't travelled far, so we believe we're getting close to the prize.”

One stone in particular, a 133-carat diamond found in January, suggests Lucapa is getting close. It was greyish, made of hundreds of separate crystals. It is largely worthless, but would not have remained intact, if it was far from the original source. “It's not very pretty looking, it doesn't add very much to the cash at the bank, but if that was transported a large distance it would have broken up. All of these recoveries have really been in a localised area.”

Lucapa's concession is 150km from Catoca (photo), a monster diamond mine, once owned by Beny Steinmetz. Lucapa is also surrounded by other alluvial producers, yet to find the source of their stones. “Potentially their source is on our property,” Wetherall says, “you don't know.”

Gravity and electromagnetic surveys both suggest that “something is sitting below the surface”, directly below Block 8. The company has bought a drill rig, shipped it to Angola and plans to start drilling immediately. “We are a very small outfit, but we are on some very, very prime ground. In Q2 of this year, we'll be holding drill core in our hands.”

Und noch einmal ein Researchbericht, enthält ab er nichts Neues:

Interessanter für mich, was aus unserem 404 Karäter geworden ist:

Forget Kohinoor, a diamond four times bigger is now in Dubai

http://www.emirates247.com/news/for...es-bigger-is-now-in-du…

Even as the governments of India, Pakistan and even Afghanistan have all laid a claim on the world-famous Kohinoor diamond that is set in the front of UK’s Queen Mother’s Crown, it is Dubai that can be called home to one of the world’s rarest and largest rough diamonds even discovered.

The astonishing rough diamond in Dubai is characterised not only by its sheer size – an impressive 404 carats – but also uniquely by its colourlessness and flawless clarity. The cut-down Kohinoor, on the other hand, weighs 105.6 carats.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of DMCC and Chair of the Kimberley Process, hosted a press conference in Dubai along with Fawaz Gruosi, Founder and Executive Board Member of diamond jewellers de Grisogono, to announce the latter’s acquisition of the rights to one of the world’s largest and rarest rough diamonds ever discovered.

“Dubai and DMCC have become the global epicentre for the diamond trade and we are delighted to have been part of facilitating the access to one of the world’s largest and rarest diamonds by de Grisogono here at Almas – the world’s tallest diamond tower,” said bin Sulayem.

“Not only does this further cement Dubai’s role as a leading diamond trading hub globally, it also highlights how DMCC connects the industry and the producing and consuming countries along the Silk Road,” he added.

One of the 30 largest top quality rough diamonds ever found, and the largest ever found in Angola, the diamond weighing 404 carats will now be cut and polished by de Grisogono’s cutters.

While Kohinoor was much bigger at 793 carats when it was first found, it was repeatedly cut and polished over the years to achieve its dazzling oval-cut brilliance. Even now, at 105.6 carats (21.12 g) and measuring 3.6cm x 3.2cm x 1.3cm, the Kohinoor’s cut is far from perfect by modern standards. Its culet is unusually broad, giving the impression of a black hole when the stone is viewed head-on.

On the other hand, DMCC along with jewellery-makers de Grisogono have the perfect opportunity to craft the recently discovered diamond into “one of the most beautiful jewellery pieces ever created”.

Contrary to the traditional process, where jewellers are restricted to the polished stones that already exist in the market, with this partnership, de Grisogono will have the opportunity to bring a jeweller’s perspective into the cutting process, maximising the beauty of the final jewellery pieces.

de Grisogono has partnered with Nemesis International, a leading rough diamond trading company based at the DMCC, which works on a day-to-day basis with the best diamond mines in world to identify, select and acquire the most precious diamonds in existence.

DMCC’s Almas Tower, purpose-built for the diamond industry and one of the most influential diamond trading centres in the world, provides a leading platform for such a significant acquisition.

“This diamond marks one of the most important milestones in my career both as a jeweller and a designer. Words cannot express how grateful my team and I are to DMCC and Nemesis International for such a unique collaboration,” said Fawaz Gruosi

So, aus dem Urlaub zurück, Kursentwicklung eher mau. Aber eine interessanter Hintergrundbeitrag von Goldinvest:

Lupaca Diamond - Erhalt von Schlüsselgenehmigungen für dreijährigen Kimberlit-Konzessionsantrag und Kimberlit-Bohrprogramm

Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (WKN: A0M6U8 / ASX: LOM) („Lucapa" oder „das Unternehmen"), Endiama E.P. („Endiama"), Angolas staatliches Diamantenunternehmen, und der private lokale Partner Rosas & Petalas („Rosas") geben die Abwicklung der Dokumente zur Gründung der Sociedade Mineira do Lulo, Limitada („SML") bekannt. SML ist das neue alluviale Bergbauunternehmen für das Diamantenprojekt Lulo in Angola.

Lucapa besitzt eine 40prozentige Beteiligung an SML und ist der Betreiber der alluvialen Diamantenabbaubetriebe Lulo. Endiama besitzt eine 32prozentige Beteiligung während Rosas & Petalas 28 Prozent besitzen. SML wird jetzt die Konzession zum Abbau der alluvialen Diamanten auf Lulo besitzen, die im Juli 2015 amtlich bekannt gegeben wurde.

Nach der formellen Abwicklung der SML-Gründungsdokumente hat Lucapa unverzüglich 7 Mio. USD an Kapital für die Weiterentwicklung und ein Ausbauprogramm auf Lulo bereitgestellt, das neue Erdbewegungsgeräte von Caterpillar, Fahrzeuge sowohl für den Abbau der alluvialen Diamanten als auch die Kimberlit-Explorationsprogramme und Verbesserungen der Camps einschließt.

Jüngste Diamantenfunde auf Lulo: 31-karätiger Diamant Typ IIa D-Colour sowie ein rosafarbener und gelber Diamant

Neuester Stand der Kimberlitbohrungen

Lucapa gibt ebenfalls bekannt, dass der Antrag auf Arbeitsgenehmigung für ausländische Mitarbeiter für mehrere leitende betriebliche Funktionen einschließlich spezialisierte Bohrarbeiter für das kommende Kimberlit-Bohrprogramm vorläufig genehmigt wurde.

Demzufolge erwartet Lucapa, dass das Kimberlit-Bohrprogramm auf Lulo am vorrangigen Kimberlitziel L259 im Juniquartal 2016 beginnen wird.

Obwohl Lucapa gehofft hatte, mit dem Bohrprogramm im April 2016 nach Eintreffen des auf einem Toyota Landcruiser montierten Bohrgeräts vor Ort beginnen zu können, so ist das Unternehmen damit zufrieden, dass die Arbeitsgenehmigungen für die Bohrspezialisten es jetzt ermöglichen, die Planungen zu avancieren.

Kimberlit-Explorationskonzession

Lucapa und ihre Partner haben auf der letzten Lulo-Vorstandssitzung ein neues dreijähriges Kimberlit-Explorationsprogramm auf Lulo unterzeichnet, das in dieser Woche dem angolanischen Geologie- und Bergbauministerium (Ministry of Geology and Mines) vorgelegt wird.

Lucapa und ihre Partner werden das Kimberlit-Explorationsprogramm auf Lulo auch während der Genehmigungszeit weiter avancieren, und sobald dieser Prozess abgeschlossen ist, werden sie die Aktionäre darüber informieren.

Lese Hotcopper auch immer mit, da hier ja so gar keine Diskussion aufkommt (leider).
Spannend wird der Juni nun allemal.
Was ich bei meinen Recherchen noch nicht herausfinden konnte, ist, ob Lucapa auch nur zu 40% an den Kosten beteiligt ist (wie bei dem Anteil am Gewinn), oder die Kosten zu 100% übernimmt.
Angola erhält ja selbst 32% und der Pächter 28%. Daher denke ich, dass zumindest der Pächter nichts hinzusteuert, der Anteil der Kosten also bei mind. 72% für Lucapa liegen dürfte.

Genau weiß ich es auch nicht. Ich bin mit sicher, dass Lucapa 100% der Kosten für die Exploration und den Abbau trägt. Beim Vertrieb und Transport der Diamanten habe ich keine Ahnung.
Spannend wird es, wenn die deutschen Anleger mal in großer Masse auf Lucapa stoßen, dann wird der Kurs steigen, die Anzahl der Threadkommentare deutlich steigen und das Niveau sinken..
Wir waren dann von Anfang an dabei und können uns an einem großen Reibach erfreuen.

Hier mal ein Interview mit dem CEO:

AFRICAN-focused Lucapa Diamonds has successfully mined and sold several high value diamonds from its Lulo project since it began producing in 2015. In early 2016, trial mining at the E46 area led to the recovery of several ‘large special’ diamonds – diamonds weighing more than 10.8 carats (ct). Lucapa chief executive Stephen Wetherall spoke to Samantha James about the demand for special diamonds in the short term, the long-term market outlook and how expansion plans at Lulo fit into the global rare diamond industry.

Q. There are several mining operations ongoing at Lucapa’s Lulo project in Angola. Could you explain how the different operations fit together in the project? How long will trial mining at E46 continue for?

After Lucapa and its partners secured an alluvial mining licence in late 2014, Lulo commenced mining alluvial diamonds in January 2015. This occurred in areas previously assessed and identified from historical bulk sampling programs. Mining Blocks 8 and 6 have been the focus of alluvial mining operations since August 2015, as these blocks have regularly produced large valuable diamonds, including the record 404ct recovered in February 2016 and three other diamonds larger than 100ct.

The recent trial mining program carried out at E46 was designed to gain additional knowledge on that diamond resource, the types and average values expected to be recovered, as it would inform the viability and potential for a second production plant in this area.

While the average grades recovered in the historical bulk sampling program were high, no special diamonds were recovered at that time. As a result, a trial mining campaign was planned for the first quarter of 2016 to answer a few questions ahead of committing to an expansion plan.

The campaign was timed over a period when access to Mining Blocks 8 and 6 would be restricted due to the Angolan wet season. The trial mining campaign is well advanced, the clouds have since lifted and Lucapa and its partners are expecting to resume mining at Mining Blocks 8 and 6 during the current June 2016 quarter.

Q. How significant are the ‘large special’ discoveries for the trial mining operation and how unique are the diamonds found at Lulo?

The recovery of a number of large valuable diamonds up to 88ct from the trial mining operations at E46 was significant [as] no special diamonds were recovered from this area during the historic bulk sampling program. The largest diamond recovered weighed less than 7cts – therefore, the frequent large white and coloured diamond recoveries from the trial mining campaign at E46 indicate that this area is also host to a large diamond population of higher quality and value, favourably impacting the economic equation of expanding production.

The diamonds recovered from Lulo are quite unique when compared to world supply. The Lulo production has an abnormally high proportion of special diamonds by weight; diamonds classified as Type IIa (a rare category of diamonds which are almost, or entirely, devoid of nitrogen impurities) and also contains fancy coloured diamonds (pinks and yellows). This all culminates in a premium overall average selling price of US$2881/ct from the sale of all Lulo diamonds sold thus far (US$6665 for 2016 alone). Compare this to the world average price of about US$120/ct.

Q. The Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and Bain & Company’s 2015 annual report stated 2015 saw a “drop in rough and polished prices against the background of continued but slowing growth in the macro economy” with growth in the second half of the year “uncertain”. How did Lucapa weather these conditions, and what has 2016 so far brought for the industry and the company?

There are many different sizes and qualities of production in the diamond sector. For ease of explanation, let’s classify the industry in two parts – commercial quality production on the one hand and high-value top quality production on the other.

World supply is dominated by commercial quality diamonds with top quality diamonds forming an extremely small part of total world production. Hence the world average price is just US$120/ct.

The comments made above by AWDC and Bain, while accurate, need to be taken in context. The diamond statistics are greatly influenced by the commercial quality pricing trends, which have been under pressure. However, in various diamonds sale announcements to the exchanges, Lucapa and other high quality producers such as Lucara Diamonds and Gem Diamonds have noted that the demand and prices for large high-quality diamonds remain healthy. As large diamonds form a material part of Lulo’s production and therefore revenue (greater than 90 per cent), the top quality producers like Lulo have fared much better than the rest of the market.

2016 started off positively for the industry. Prices have been far more robust than in 2015. Reduced supply this year from the major producers (De Beers and Alrosa) has seen better pricing in the rough sector and certain shortages in the polished inventories, which has led to margins, although small margins, creep back into the manufacturing sector.

While pricing has been positively impacted in the early part of 2016, it could be short term. Questions still remain as to retail consumer demand growth or sustainability in the emerging but slowing markets of China and India and if the majors will keep supply at currently reduced levels. This, I believe, is the reason a number of experts have stated the second half to be “uncertain” for the industry as a whole.

Lucapa Diamonds chief executive Stephen Wetherall with joint venture partner Endiama chairman Antonio Carlos Sumbula.

Q. Lucapa’s latest quarterly report stated that Lulo generated record quarterly gross diamond revenues of $32.5 million, “underlining the strong global demand for large top-tier gems”. Could you elaborate on the demand and outlook going forward?

Lucapa sees demand and pricing for higher-quality production remaining strong through 2016. In recent days, the demand for large quality diamonds was further evidenced by the sale of an 813ct diamond, recovered last year by Lucara Diamonds from its Karowe mine in Botswana, for US$63 million. This was reported to be the highest value ever achieved for a rough diamond. There are only a few diamond miners in the world producing large valuable diamonds on a regular basis and, like Lucara, Lucapa is one of them.

Unfortunately, the demand and pricing for commercial quality production is not that certain. It is heavily dependent on the major producers supply into the market and other macro-economic factors, most of which are neither controllable nor predictable.

However, if the majors continue to act responsibly, by keeping supply down and there are no surprises in China and India (where most new demand was forecast to originate), then prices should be flat for the remainder of the year. If not, then this sector of the diamond market could be impacted.

Q. What is your long-term outlook on the diamond market? The AWDC and Bain stated in last year’s report: “The supply of rough diamonds in value terms is expected to decline by 1 per cent to 2 per cent per year through 2030.”

In the longer term, the growth in demand for natural diamonds is expected to exceed the projected supply. This imbalance, in the absence of any other outside influence, would normally result in a favourable impact on price. There have been no major new diamond mine discoveries for some time now and a number of large mines are not expected to be in production for too much longer, so I agree that annual supply is expected to reduce both in carat and value terms.

Natural supply will reduce, but will not fall off a cliff as some may claim. As diamond supply reduces, rough prices should increase in real terms, so miners can strip wider and dig deeper for resources that were previously considered uneconomic.

For the higher value, natural rough production such as the Lulo production, supply is limited and large maturing mines nearing their end just makes it even more so. While there will always be short term cyclical, industry volatility and macroeconomic influences, I believe the demand curve for investment grade high value diamonds in the long term will continue to move north.

Q. Kimberlite drilling targets at the high-priority L259 deposit were outlined during the March quarter. How significant are these targets – they could potentially find the source of the alluvial diamonds and what will that mean for the operation?

These targets are very significant. Should one of the targets identified for drilling prove to be a source of the large, irregular shaped, jagged edge, Type IIA diamonds being recovered in Mining Blocks 8 and 6, then given the current grade and values of those diamonds, their source(s) are likely to be very economic.

The size of and depth of a kimberlite pipe hosting diamonds will ultimately determine the type of mine (open pit or underground), investment required and life of mine from which the project value can be assessed.

Lucapa and its partners purchased a mobile drilling rig late last year for the Lulo kimberlite drilling program and this rig has arrived on site. Drilling will commence as soon as the drillers are issued their Angolan work visas, which is not expected to take too much longer. The drilling program will commence at L259 and will include other priority kimberlites in this area, including L248, L13, L15 and E217. The recent recoveries at E46, which include a number of large high value diamonds, have recently escalated the targets in this area for priority drilling as well.

Q. What do you think the second half of 2016 will bring for Lucapa?

Strategically, Lucapa will continue to work with its partners to grow our knowledge of the alluvial diamond areas on the Lulo concession area to increase the life of the alluvial mining operation and to locate the primary kimberlite source(s) of the diamonds.

Operationally, plans for 2016 include scaling alluvial mining operations to pre-wet season rates of 20,000 bulk cubic metres per month (bcm/m) as soon as possible at Mining Blocks 8 and 6; holding more regular diamond sales in the current year to continue to generate positive cash flow; and advance the priority kimberlite drilling and exploration program. Lucapa and its partners will evaluate whether to double alluvial diamond mining rates to 40,000 bcm/m, increase the JORC-compliant inferred diamond resource to extend the life of mine, continue to invest in diamond plant optimisation initiatives (such as the installation of an XRT-scanning module to assist in the recovery of large special diamonds) and install a deep boiling facility to clean diamonds properly and thus enhance their sale value.

News:

ASX Announcement 27 June 2016 KIMBERLITE DRILLING COMMENCES AT LULO
- Cash generation also continues with the sale of another parcel of Lulo diamonds for A$1.2 million


 Drilling of high-priority kimberlite targets has commenced at Lulo to identify the primary
source or sources of the exceptional alluvial diamonds being mined
 First kimberlite target to be drilled is L259 – beneath where large premium-value diamonds have been recovered including the record 404 carat gem which sold for A$22.5million
 Lulo kimberlite drilling program scheduled to continue throughout 2016
 Options being considered for a second drilling rig with a deeper and wider capability to assist in expediting the drilling program


Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (ASX: LOM) (“Lucapa” or “the Company”) and its partners are pleased to announce the commencement of a drilling program to test high-priority kimberlite targets at the Lulo Diamond Project in Angola.
The aim of the drilling program is to help identify the primary kimberlite source, or sources, of the large, highvalue alluvial diamonds being recovered from Lulo, which include Angola’s biggest recorded diamond – a 404 carat Type IIa D-colour gem which sold for $22.5 million in February 2016 (See ASX announcements 15 February 2016 and 29 February 2016).
The drilling program has now commenced at the L259 kimberlite target, where previous gravity and ground electro-magnetic (EM) surveys identified a 78-108 hectare body consistent with a weathered near-surface expression of a kimberlite pipe (Figure 1).
Drill sites have been prepared for 10 scheduled holes to be drilled at L259 in the initial drilling phase.
Other proximal kimberlites scheduled to be drilled include L13, L15, E217 and L248. These kimberlites are all close to alluvial Mining Blocks 8 at 6, which have been regular sources of large, premium-value special diamonds (Figure 2).
The kimberlite drilling is being conducted using the Landcruiser-mounted Sedidrill rig purchased by the Lulo partners. The diamond rig can drill 61mm diameter holes to extract core from a depth of up to 70 metres. The Sedidrill rig also has auger drilling capacity.

As detailed in the ASX announcements of 16 March 2016 and 13 April 2016, the potential aims of the initial kimberlite drilling program include:
1. To confirm the presence of kimberlite material in areas of coincident gravity and EM and potentially
beyond the survey limits;
2. To define pyroclastic kimberlite (PK) material suitable for bulk sampling (using an excavator) and
processing through the Lulo diamond plant;
3. To extract kimberlite core samples for detailed petrographic analysis and recovery of indicator
minerals, as well as possible geochemical analysis; and
4. To assist in defining the internal geology of the kimberlite
Note: As per all early phase kimberlite drilling programs, the Sedidrill drilling does not aim to recover macro diamonds in the drill core. Rather, as set out above, its aim is to define the geology and identify kimberlite material – and its depth below surface – to determine whether that kimberlite material can be bulk sampled using an excavator and processed through the Lulo diamond plant to determine diamond Content.

The Lulo kimberlite drilling program is scheduled to continue throughout 2016 and will also include priority targets in the E46 alluvial area, where the Lulo partners have recovered more than 20 special Diamonds (individual diamonds weighing more than 10.8 carats) of up to 88 carats fromrecent trial mining activities.
The targets in this area include the diamondiferous L46 and L19 kimberlites, as well as L18 (Figure 2).
Lucapa and its partners are assessing options for a second drilling rig with a deeper and wider capability that would assist in expediting this drilling program.

Diamond Sale
Lucapa and its partners are also pleased to announce the results of the latest sale of Lulo alluvial diamonds, which has added to the cash resources of mining company Sociedade Mineira do Lulo (SML), which Lucapa operates and has a 40%interest in.
The parcel of 808 carats of Lulo diamonds achieved gross sale proceeds of A$1.2 million (US$880,720), representing an average sale price per carat of A$1,480 (US$1,090).

Hier mal wieder ein Beitrag von ecat88 aus dem Hotcopper-Forum. Er erklärt was bei den Kimberlite-Bohrungen jetzt passiert:

http://hotcopper.com.au/threads/ann-kimberlite-drilling-comm…

The purpose of the shallow narrow-core drilling will be to obtain information on the rock layering (stratigraphy) and the mineral chemistry (micro-probing) of the kimberlite samples obtained. The sample volume of any Pyroclastic Kimberlite (PK) they obtain from a narrow-core drill is tiny so it is not even worth checking for macro-diamonds. If diamonds are there, later bulk sampling will confirm them.

The primary rock layer that the drilling is targeting is the Pyroclastic Kimberlite layer (PK). This can be identified visually straight from the drill core. Earlier trenching and pitting of Block 8 was around 7 metres deep and only came across overburden and Resedimented Volcaniclastic Kimberlite (RVK) but not PK. Therefore the PK would be deeper than 7 metres. Additional info from the gravity survey indicated that the low density (weathered) zone of L259 was about 100 metres thick. So as a rough guide, the PK should be located somewhere between 7 to 100 metres. Beyond 100 metres deep the density increases which indicates the harder unweathered kimberlite zone. So the preferable result would be for the PK to be located very shallow. The shallower the better as it will be easier and faster for the excavators to take bulk samples if there is less overburden. If it is deeper, it will take more time and effort to get bulk samples.

The drill core samples obtained are also likely to undergo micro-probing analyses for kimberlite indicator minerals. This will be a secondary check to help target the best areas. As L259 is massive, the presence and amount of G10 garnets and other favourable minerals will indicate which areas contain kimberlite that is more likely to have come from the diamond-stability zone of the mantle. These areas would then be classified as higher-priority zones for bulk sampling. Micro-probing analysis is a slow process as the samples are sent to the lab. Whilst waiting for the lab results, they will simply bulk sample the areas that have the shallowest and most accessible Pyroclastic Kimberlite.

More targeted bulk sampling based on these micro-probing results from the lab will occur later. This is when the 2nd drill rig with deeper and wider capability would prove useful. Wide-core drilling would allow bulk sampling of these high-priority zones even if the PK sits deeper.

Lucapa Diamonds may lift Lulo stake in Endiama share swap

By David McKay -
July 7, 2016

LUCAPA Diamond Company, the Sydney-listed diamond producer and exploration firm, is in discussions to increase its stake in its 40%-owned Lulo diamond mine in Angola.

Stephen Wetherall, CEO of Lucapa, said two streams of discussions were underway with partners Rosas e Petalas, a private Angolan company which has a 28% stake in the mine and Angola’s state-owned diamond company, Endiama (32%).

Endiama is considering either a cash sale for part or all of its stake, or a swap of its stake for equity in Lucapa Diamonds. Lulo, which yielded 2,670 carats in diamond sales in the June quarter, is owned by local firm Sociedade Mineira de Lulo (SML) through which the partners have their shares.

“Within the shareholders’ agreement we all have pre-emptive rights on each others’ stakes so no party can go to a third party without offering to the existing parties first,” said Wetherall in an interview.

“Internally, we have been in constant discussion with the local partner on what he would expect to receive for the sale of some of his stake to us. As continue to deliver, so his potential sale number goes up too,” he said. Rosas e Petalas is run by local businessman and lawyer Celso Rosa who has owned the concession since 2002.

“Secondly, we have also been in discussion in Endiama as to whether they would sell their stake. It’s not gone as far as the local partner stake,” he said. “Endiama would either consider cash and-or swapping equity for some Lucara equity,” said Wetherall.

Investors in Angola’s diamond industry left in droves about a decade ago partly owing to Endiama’s insistence, before its new mining code was introduced in 2011, that it own a minimum 51% stake in any diamond mines.

“That was a massive hurdle for foreign investors, but the new mining codes does away with that,” said Wetherall. “De Beers made it well known it is trying to get back into Angola,” he said. “They have Angola prominently featured as area they are trying to get back in to.

“Alrosa is operating Catoca and they have been exploring in Angola and have identified in new pipe requiring some $800m in investment,” he said. The Catoca mine, the world’s fourth largest diamond mine, is about 150km from Lulo, a 3,000 square kilometre concession in Angola’s Lunda Norte mine.

Big finds

Diamonds discovered at Lulo currently by Lucapa are alluvial. These are widely dispersed diamonds that were carried into river beds from the original volcanoes through a process of erosion over millions of years.

They are also predominantly of the large stone variety, defined as about 10.8 carats in weight upwards. Wetherall said these diamonds are “very rare indeed”. About 60% of Lucara’s stones weight about 100 carats. However, earlier this year it found a diamond weighing 404 carats.

Lucapa today reported gross proceeds of $3m for the second quarter which is equal to an average price of $1,132 per carat. On an interim basis, diamond sales totalled $26.2m or some $5,686 per carat. The company is well capitalised with cash in hand at the close of the second quarter of about $10.8m.

“Lulo is a magnificant diamond project. What we have recovered makes us very special and a very unique diamond company,” said Wetherall.

There are plans to double production at Lulo either by expanding the current plant facilities or establishing a new plant which would be positioned near a part of Lulo that yields particularly high value stones.

“The latter is the most optimal,” said Wetherall. Establishing a separate plant would involve less capital expenditure and provide flexibility to the firm’s operations in the event of downtime at the existing plant. “Thirdly, we would have the ability to have one of the treat kimberlites,” he said referring to an exploration programme to discover the kimberlite pipe that is the source of the alluvial diamonds Lucapa is mining.

Ich habe heute noch einmal nachgelegt. Ich denke, sie können relativ gut vorhersagen, wo sie viele Diamanten alluvial finden und werden die Zahlen vom Juli bestätigen wollen. Ob sie diese auf Dauer halten können ist eine andere Frage. Den Kurs sollte es auf jeden Fall stützen.

Zuletzt gute Nachrichten bei Lucapa. Leider funktioniert wo: bei mir häufig nicht. Jetzt mal das wichtigste im Nachtrag:

Lucapa Diamond - Lulo macht große Freude! Gastautor: Björn Junker | 06.09.2016

Die australische Lucapa Diamond Company Limited (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) verzeichnet ein außergewöhnlich gutes Quartal. Die Gesellschaft veröffentlicht üblicherweise die Zahlen für ein Quartal, wich aufgrund der starken Förderzahlen aber im vergangenen Monat von diesem Procedere ab - wir berichteten. Diamanten mit insgesamt 3.164 Karat wurden im Juli gefördert, was für die Company einen neuen Rekord bedeutet. Nun kommen erneut Monatsdaten des Konzerns, die wieder sehr gut ausfallen. Diesmal sind es die Verkaufszahlen für Diamanten, die positiv überraschen. Lucapa Diamond konnte Diamanten mit einem Gesamtgewicht von 3.642 Karat verkaufen. Den Verkaufserlös beziffern die Australier auf brutto 4,4 Millionen US-Dollar. Die Werte aus dem Vormonat lagen bei 2,4 Millionen Dollar, die mit dem Verkauf von 1.985 Karat erzielt wurden. Den ohnehin schon hohen Verkaufspreis von 1.211 Dollar je Karat aus dem Vormonat konnte Lucapa Diamond mit 1.212 Dollar für den August sogar noch einmal übertreffen. Lucapa Diamond erzielt hohe Verkaufspreise pro Karat Ohnehin erzielt der Konzern im Vergleich zu den Durchschnittspreisen auf dem Weltmarkt hohe Erlöse pro Karat. Das liegt auch an den immer wieder in der Lulo-Mine gefundenen Top-Steinen. Gleich 59 spezielle Diamanten mit mehr als 10,8 Karat fand man allein im Juli - das sind mehr als in der gesamten ersten Jahreshälfte. „Die verkauften Diamanten schlossen einen 28,5-karätigen leicht rosafarbenen Diamanten ein, der jetzt der größte und wertvollste farbige Diamant ist, der bis dato gefunden und verkauft wurde", meldet Lucapa Diamond zu den August-Verkaufszahlen und unterstreicht damit „das Potenzial von Lulo für die Produktion sowohl großer als auch hochwertiger Schmucksteine". Die Zahlen zeigen: Lucapas Investitionen in die Anlagen auf der angolanischen Lulo-Mine tragen Früchte. Neues Equipment wurde angeschafft, sodass nun höhere Kapazitäten verarbeitet werden können. Neben einer Aufrüstung bei der Transportflotte spielten bei den Investitionen vor allem Verbesserungen und Kapazitätserweiterungen bei der Verarbeitungsanlage eine Rolle. Die Modernisierungen sind noch nicht abgeschlossen und sollen weiter verbesserte Produktionsbedingungen bringen: Unter anderem will man bis zum Ende des laufenden Quartals eine neue Technologie installiert haben, mit der auf Lulo Diamanten mit einer Größe von bis zu 1.100 Karat gewonnen werden können. Diamantenproduktion auf Lulo läuft weiter besser als geplant Noch offen ist, welche Förderzahlen die Australier und ihre Partner nach dem Rekordmonat Juli im vergangenen Monat auf dem angolanischen Lulo-Projekt erzielt haben. Fest steht jetzt schon, dass die Produktion erneut über den Planungen liegt. Genaue Zahlen nennt Lucapa Diamond am Dienstag allerdings nicht, hierzu müssen erst Untersuchungen abgeschlossen werden. Zuletzt ging man im Lucapa-Management von steigenden Zahlen im September-Quartal aus. Die Aktie von Lucapa Diamond hat den heutigen Handel an der australischen Börse mit 0,35 Dollar (+1,45 Prozent) beendet. Im heimischen XETRA-Handel wurde zuletzt ein Preis von 0,24 Euro für die Rohstoffaktie bezahlt, ein Kursplus von 1,69 Prozent.

Und von heute:

Außergewöhnlicher Fund Lucapa Diamond entdeckt bislang größten farbigen Diamanten des Lulo-Projekts Gastautor: Björn Junker | 08.09.2016

Diamanten werden in den verschiedensten Farben gefunden. Im Gegensatz zu den weißen Diamanten ist bei den farbigen Steinen nicht die Reinheit entscheidend, sondern die Intensität der Färbung. Intensiv gefärbte rosafarbene oder blaue Diamanten können schnell – trotz möglicher Unreinheiten – zehn- oder hunderttausende Dollar pro Karat erzielen. Das dürfte der Grund sein, warum Lucapa Diamond (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) jetzt den Fund eines einzelnen solchen Steines meldet. Denn wie das Unternehmen heute bekannt gab, hat man im alluvialen Abbau auf dem Lulo-Projekt einen 38,6-karätigen, rosafarbenen Diamanten zutage gefördert. Dabei handelt es sich um den größten farbigen Diamanten, den Lucapa Diamond bisher auf seinem Projekt in Angola entdeckt hat. [Lucapa Diamond - Pink Lulo Diamond 36_8 Karat] Der rosafarbene Diamant mit 36,8 Karat; Foto: Lucapa Diamond Zuletzt hatte das Unternehmen einen leicht rosafarbenen Diamanten von 28,5 gefördert, der im jüngsten Verkaufspaket, das im August veräußert wurde, enthalten war. Schon damals erklärte das Unternehmen, dies sei „der größte und wertvollste farbige Diamant [..], der bis dato gefunden und verkauft wurde“. Lucapa hatte damals den Verkauf von Diamanten mit insgesamt 3.642 Karat gemeldet, die einen Durchschnittspreis von außergewöhnlich hohen 1.212 USD pro Karat erbrachten (insgesamt 4,4 Millionen US-Dollar). Bleibt also abzuwarten, wie sich die Zahlen des nächsten Verkaufs lesen, in dem der neue, rosafarbene Diamant enthalten sein dürfte, ob dieser Wert noch einmal übertroffen werden kann.

Has this tiny Aussie diamond explorer just discovered…
‘The Next Catoca’?
UPDATE: Three recent announcements signal this ASX-listed explorer could be just weeks away from the world’s first major,
commercial diamond mine discovery in 12 years.
Back them now BEFORE they find it and you could be 10 times richer by September 2017
Dear Reader,
We don’t have much time…
You’re looking at a tiny Aussie diamond explorer on the verge of cracking open a history-making discovery…
The likes of which you probably won’t see again for years.
If this once-in-a-decade diamond deposit is as big as I think, shares in this company could soon see a major share price uplift.
Which is why I’ve issued this time-sensitive investment alert for your immediate attention.
The time to act on this is NOW, before it’s too late.
I want you to squeeze every last bit of potential profit from this opportunity while you can.
So what’s this all about?
Let me show you…
Deep in the heart of Angolan ‘diamond country’ lies Catoca.
Covering 64 hectares, it’s the biggest diamond mine in Angolan history, and the fourth largest on the world stage.
The Russian owner of the mine, Alrosa, estimates it holds reserves of 189 million carats.
That’s the equivalent of $11 billion on the open market…and enough to satisfy global diamond demand for a whole year.
Right now, it’s the biggest, richest diamond mine in Angolan history…
But I think it’s about to be overtaken by the firm I want to tell you about today.
You see, this fast-moving Aussie explorer could be just weeks away from ripping the lid off Angola’s next record-breaking diamond deposit.
In fact, this deposit could be so vast, deep and rich,
it will make Catoca look small by comparison.
Act on this opportunity quickly and I believe you could make a lot of money in the months ahead.
Three recent announcements have given them a huge clue on the exact location of the diamond ‘treasure chest’
As you’ll see, they’re so close…they’re practically on top of it.
One of the world’s foremost experts on diamond geology says this deposit could be as little as ‘500 meters’ from where this firm is digging right now.
The chances of hitting a major diamond vein are high. If they find it, the potential gains on the table could be huge.
Let me briefly lay on the table exactly what you’re looking at here:
• The deposit this firm is chasing could hold high-quality diamond reserves greater than Catoca…upwards of 189 million carats!
• That means you’re possibly looking at a diamond deposit north of $10 BILLION on the open market…
• Yet this tiny firm is valued at just $100 million today...
Right now, you can pick up shares for just 40 cents each.
But if this diamond pit is as vast and rich as I suspect,
investors could be greedily snapping up the same shares for anywhere between $2.50 and $4.00 by this time next year.
That’s right...you could be looking at gains of between 525% and 1,000% from one stock.
The time to secure your stake in this fast-moving Aussie firm is now,
BEFORE they find it. A second drill rig is about to touchdown on site.
This company knows they’re onto something BIG and they’re about to ‘double-down’ on drilling efforts.
I won’t be surprised if they find a commercial-sized diamond vein within the next few months....maybe even weeks.
Look, I doubt you’ll see another opportunity like this for a decade or longer.
That’s why now is the time to act. I mean that. Rio Tinto discovered the last major diamond deposit in 2004.
And the largest before that was the Canadian mine ‘Gahcho Kué’ in 1995.
That shows you how ultra-rare large diamond deposits are.
But if you act decisively and buy a meaningful stake in the right diamond-focused exploration company...
The rewards could be enormous.
• Peregrine Diamonds Ltd [TSEGD] shares have doubled since February…
• Shares in Russian owned Alrosa [MCX:ALRS], owner of the world's largest diamond mine, Jubilee, have tripled since 2011.
• And another pure-play diamond hunter, Lucara [TSE:LUC], is up 770% since 2012.
Commercial diamond deposits are rare and extremely valuable.
So companies that find one are practically guaranteed huge share price uplifts.
That’s why this Aussie explorer could make you 525% to 1,000% as soon as they find it.
By the way, I’m not talking about small and steady gains here.
I believe you could see your money multiply seven, eight, even 10 times over in a matter of weeks….even OVERNIGHT.
If the thought of sudden shifts in your wealth leave you short of breath, you might want to sit this one out.
On the other hand, if you revel in the thrill of risking a little money and watching it rapidly transform into a lot more...a whole lot more…then read on... You could make some SERIOUS money on this if you act quickly
Three hours north of Catoca lies a 3,000 square kilometre patch of sun-scorched Angolan land with eerily similar geological characteristics.
This land is already proven to be rich with diamonds...and this tiny digger holds rights to the LOT
. In February, the company uncovered a monster 404-carat diamond.
This giant ‘sparkler’ is the biggest diamond in Angolan history...and the 27th largest diamond in the world.
The company recently sold this diamond at auction for $22.5 million.
Every cent of that money was poured back into the business. $22.5 million is a big win for the company…
but it’s the size and shape of this 404-carat gem that has serious,
in-the-know investors jumping up and down.
You see, the sheer size of this rock is a huge clue they’re closing in on the REAL prize...
the kimberlite or ‘source’ diamond mine. Smaller diamonds can be washed away…
sometimes hundreds of kilometres from the source mine.
Large diamonds like this mean only one thing: a massive treasure chest full of diamonds is nearby.
It’s a big clue to where the main deposit could be. But the story gets even better.
You see, a recent market update has revealed more positive evidence this firm is closing in on a concentrated primary diamond source… FOUND: The biggest diamond discovery of the 21st century In August,
the firm announced drilling had started near where the 404-carat diamond was found.
A 3D geophysical survey of the area (as seen to the right) shows ‘a 78-108 hectare body which is consistent with the weathered near-surface expression of a kimberlite…’
If this is indeed a ‘kimberlite’ or main diamond vein…it could be HUGE.
‘108 hectares’ is near twice the size of the 64-hectare Catoca mine.
Of course, that’s assuming the entire potential ‘kimberlite expression’ is packed with diamonds.
But the signs are looking good…REALLY good.
The August announcement also revealed the company had picked up 59 large (10 carats and above),
special diamonds on this site during July.
That’s the largest amount of big diamonds the company has ever picked up in a single month…
and more than the 53 they recovered in the entire previous six months!
On average, they’re finding two huge gems every single day. I’m trying not to get ahead of myself.
But, with drilling ramping up, a major near term kimberlite discovery is pretty much staring us straight in the face.
Indeed, this information is telling me…
This Aussie diamond hunter could be metres away from the biggest diamond discovery of the 21st century!
I’m not the only one who thinks so... Dr John Ward, a highly sought-after diamond exploration consultant,
having worked many years for diamond companies like De Beers and Gem Diamonds, weighed in on the companies findings.
Here’s what he had to say about the firm’s diamond pit:
‘…it is highly likely that the excavation locality is less than 1.5km from the primary source (probably closer to 0.5km).
’ In other words, Ward believes a viable diamond mine could be less than 500m away!
Will they find it? There are no guarantees.
But if they DO find it, and this play pans out as I expect,
you could see a small sum of money like $500 turn into $5,000 or more. Instantly.
Which is why you have to act quickly on this one, while shares are still dirt-cheap.
Look, there’s a chance they may find nothing at all.
But if it is successful, and this company hits the diamond mother lode...
its stock price could see a major uplift. Put a little money on the line today,
and you could see that cash multiply rapidly.

von wem da wohl gesprochen wird....

Lucapa - delivering the goods but not the share price
It is ironic that just when LOM is delivering on its promises,
with increasing diamond production and sales, and the
recovery of a very valuable 38 carat fancy pink diamond,
the share price is underperforming.
Back when LOM was a hotly traded stock, before the
turning of the mining equities markets, it was one of the few
trading stocks that offered relief from the bear market. Now
that the mining sector is hot again there are plenty of other
vehicles to trade. Perhaps that is one explanation for the
softer price.
The critical piece of news that we still await is the renewal
of the kimberlite exploration licence. It seems to be taking
forever, but this is nothing new. Angola seems to operate
on a different timetable such that it is impossible to
accurately forecast a date. We know it will happen,
eventually. In the meantime operations are going well and
there is no need to be concerned.
The other news flow we are looking for is the drilling results
that are expected to confirm the kimberlite pipe. Until then it
is a matter of being what so few traders have trouble being
- patient. Prudent investors will be taking advantage of
these low prices to add to their holdings, with reasonable
expectations of a move to $1.00 plus over the next 12
months.

Aust miner finds 172 carat diamond

http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2016/09/26/aust-miner-fin…

Australian miner Lucapa has found a large, nearly pure diamond at its main operation in Angola, the fifth weighing more than 100 carats it has found this year.

Australian miner Lucapa Diamond Company has unearthed a large almost pure diamond at its main Angolan mine.

The 172.67 carat diamond weighs about 35 grams and Lucapa says it is a Type IIa D-colour stone, meaning it's almost entirely devoid of impurities and colourless.

Chief executive Steve Wetherall said the "exceptional" stone was recovered from alluvial operations at Lulo, about 630km east of the Angolan capital Luanda.
Is is the fifth over 100 carat diamond recovered from the mining operations so far in 2016 and the sixth in total," he said in a statement on Monday.

Das ist mal ein richtig schöner und gut recherchierter Artikel. Und "The Australian" ist nicht irgendeine Zeitung, sondern eine der drei großen Tageszeitungen Down Under. Er findet sich heute auch in der Onlineausgabe. Den LInk bekomme ich allerdings nicht hin, da man erst auf die Registrierungsseite muss.

Lucapa Diamond’s road to riches in Angola

Deep in the jungle of Angola are what could well be the world’s most valuable dirt tracks.

These roads, built throughout the Lulo project of Subiaco-based Lucapa Diamond Co, may turn out to contain some of the biggest and best diamonds on Earth.

Starting next month, Lucapa will start processing the material used to build the roads in the hope it will recover monster gems worth millions of dollars each.

Up until February, Lucapa had been using the biggest rocks from the diamond-rich gravels around Lulo to build roads around the project in the belief that none of them could be diamonds. That all changed, however, on February 4 when the company recovered a giant 404-carat stone — a diamond bigger than any other ever found in Angola.

It was a gem that should never have been discovered.

Lucapa’s processing plant was only configured to recover diamonds up to a maximum size of 280 carats (the biggest diamond ever unearthed in Angola at that time was 278 carats). As it was, the elongate shape of the 404-carat diamond — it resembles a large thumb — and its orientation as it went through the Lulo processing plant meant it managed to fit through the holes in the sorting screen.

Had it been lying horizontally rather than vertically at the time it passed over the screen, the stone — ultimately sold for $US16 million — would have gone straight into the waste stockpile for use in more roads.

Since that fateful day in February, Lucapa has been stockpiling all the over-size material from Lulo as it prepares to install a new sorting machine capable of recovering diamonds weighing up to 1000 carats each.

That new machine will start up next month, with Lucapa understandably excited about just what might be found among that over-size material.

The diamond mining business is infamously unpredictable, but the miraculous story of the 404-carat diamond means Lucapa and its shareholders believe they’ve got a good shot at finding more mega-gems. The likelihood that the only stone of such size from Lulo was also the only one with the right shape and orientation to fall through the sorting screen simply feels too remote.

The upside of success is huge given diamond prices increase almost exponentially with size. The $US16m Lucapa received for its 404-carat stone compares with the $US63m sale price in May for an 812-carat monster from the Botswanan diamond mine of rival company Lucara Diamond Corp. (Lucara also found the tennis ball-sized 1111 carat Lesedi La Rona diamond, the second-biggest ever unearthed, although that failed to sell at an auction earlier this year.)

Lucapa will start off by processing the oversized material it has stockpiled at Lulo since February. If that leads to the recovery of more giants, then Lucapa will begin digging up the roads.

Lucapa chairman Miles Kennedy already jokingly (and perhaps optimistically) refers to the tracks around Lulo as “the diamond highways”.

“It will be interesting to see what that stockpile gives us,” Mr Kennedy says. “We’re quietly confident we’re going to see some big stones but we have to wait and see.”

The processing upgrade at Lulo has cost Lucapa and its partners $US2.75m. The recovery of a single big stone from the over-size material would pay for that a number of times over.

Even leaving the potential monster stones aside, Lulo has already had a track record of yielding big gems.

So far Lucapa has already found six stones of 100 carats or more, including two in the past fortnight.

The diamonds it is finding are also of very high quality, reflected in its average sale price of around $US2,100 per carat. Uncut diamonds typically averaging $120 a carat. “There’s no doubt at all that there is no diamond deposit anywhere in the world which is producing stones of this calibre and value,” Mr Kennedy said.

That, he says, includes Lucapa and its record-breaking gems.

“They’ve had the biggest stone, obviously, but they’re processing a lot of material and incurring a lot of cost to do that whereas we’re mining a couple of meters below the surface,” he said. “On the cost curve we are way ahead of anyone, and we’re getting the big diamonds. Our costs are $1.3m a month; you can see us generating between $5 and $12m a month, so it’s looking pretty spectacular.”

Eigentlich nichts Neues, aber fürs Wochenende...


http://www.diamondrocks.co.uk/blog/Another Massive Rock for …


Lucapa Diamond Company has enjoyed a lot of time in the headlines recently. New diamond mining technology has made it easier for miners to locate and unearth large diamonds intact. For those who have been able to invest in the technology, there has been big payoffs. Few, though, have enjoyed the massive success of Lucapa.

Yet another diamond weighing in at more than 100 carats was pulled from the company’s mine in Angola. And, this is a tiny operation compared to some of the diamonds mines around the world, which, undoubtedly, makes the news even harder to swallow for competing companies.

The most recent discovery is a colourless stone of great quality, which weighs in at more than 172 carats. It has already received the designation of a type IIa diamond. The mine, called Lulu, also produced a 103 carat stone just a week before this. As one might imagine, investors are eagerly jumping on board, excited at the prospects of what is a very young mine. The stock prices jumped 6.5% in a single day, with the announcement of this more recent glimmering example of Mother Nature’s talents.

Not only are they finding- and unearthing these massive rocks, they are selling them for great profits as well. The 404 carat diamond discovered earlier this year was sold, in its raw form, for approximately £13.3 million. The company also sold a very large pink diamond unearthed from the same mine as part of a parcel with a combined carat weight of approximately 3600 carats. The stones sold for an average of approximately £947 per carat.

Lulo has proven to be a very wise and very profitable venture for the small diamond company. Lucapa is quickly making itself one of the most widely recognized players in the diamond industry, which is exceptionally impressive given the size and financial prowess of some of the company’s competitors.

Diamantproduktion steigt um 154% Lucapa Diamond – Absolutes Rekordquartal Gastautor: Björn Junker | 12.10.2016, 09:40 | 283 | 0 | Nachdem der australische Produzent alluvialer Diamanten Lucapa Diamond (WKN A0M6U8 / ASX LOM) bereits in den vergangenen Monaten von hervorragenden Produktionszahlen berichtet hatte, kommt es nicht als Überraschung, dass das Unternehmen im Septemberquartal dieses Jahres einen neuen Produktionsrekord aufgestellt hat. Und zwar einen beeindruckenden! Denn insgesamt förderte die in Angola aktive Tochtergesellschaft Sociedade Mineira Do Lulo („SML“), an der Lucapa 40% hält, in den drei Monaten bis Ende September 8.853 Karat (!) aus dem alluvialen Betrieb auf dem Lulo-Projekt in Angola. Das ist ein Anstieg von satten 154% im Vergleich zum dritten Quartal 2015. [lucapa-diamond-173-carat-type-iia-d-colour-white-gem-and-4-carat-pink-diamond-from-september-quarter-production] 173karätiger TypIIa und 39karätiger rosa Diamant; Quelle Lucapa Diamond Besonders positiv ist, dass diese Produktion 137 so genannte spezielle Diamanten mit insgesamt 3.210 Karat enthielt (Steine mit einem Gewicht von mehr als 10,8 Karat), was einen weiteren Rekord darstellt und in dieser Regelmäßigkeit einzigartig sein dürfte. Zu diesen besonderen Steinen gehörten übrigens auch Typ IIa-Diamanten von 173 und 104 Karat sowie ein 39 Karat schwerer rosafarbener Diamant. Insgesamt hat Lucapa 2016 damit bisher 190 solcher besonders wertvoller Steine entdeckt – 328% mehr als in den ersten neun Monaten 2015… Hinzu kommt, dass die durchschnittliche Größe der im Septemberquartal geförderten Diamanten bei 1,9 Karat lag, was ebenso einen Quartalsrekord darstellt wie der durchschnittliche Diamantgehalt von 13,7 Karat pro 100 Kubikmeter. Die alluviale Diamantproduktion auf Lulo entwickelt sich immer mehr zu einem extrem lohnenden Geschäft für Lucapa. Dennoch sei daran erinnert, dass das Unternehmen den größten Teil dieser Erträge in die viel versprechende Exploration nach der Kimberlitquelle all dieser außergewöhnlichen Diamanten steckt. Denn dort warten im Erfolgsfall noch wesentlich höhere Erträge – und Kurschancen für die Aktionäre des Unternehmens.

In hotcopper hat der alte Fuchs Bungy zu den Besitzverhältnissen an Lulo geschrieben. 100% verstehe ich es nicht, dafür ist mein Englisch zu wenig differenziert, aber interessant und grundlegend ist es allemal:

I've noticed that we're attracting a lot more interest in Lucapa at late, so just want to clarify where we stand with respect to net revenue generated from alluvial and kimberlite diamond sales, and the fact that ownership percentage can be very flexible.

If we go back to when Lucapa was granted the Lulo diamond concession, after Sunland Mining failed to meet it's minimum spend obligation, this is the breakdown of ownership:

Alluvial
ENDIAMA 32%
Lucapa 40%
Rosas e Petalas 28%

Kimberlite
ENDIAMA 51%
Lucapa 39% (reducing to 30% after full recoupment of kimberlite investment)
Rosas e Petalas 19%

You will note that, unlike the kimberlite exploration, there was no clause documenting how Lucapa would recoup the alluvial exploration investment, other than the flat 40% rate. That all changed when the alluvial mining company, Sociedade Mineira Do Lulo, LDA was formed, where Lucapa will receive 70% (50% of free cash + 40% of the remaining 50%) until we recoup our investment. Our share will revert back to 40% once we recoup our investment.

With respect to the kimberlite, is 30% good enough?

Well, IMO, yes if we could retain close to the full 30% after the mine is developed. As you will see from the following, ENDIAMA's and Alrosa's cut of a new kimberlite mine is in fact 30% each, but then Alrosa didn't have an alluvial expense owing to them as a bargaining tool, and ENDIAMA's cut is in line with the new mining code.

Getting attention in the media recently is, what has been described as the next Catoca, the +350m carats Luaxe kimberlite which is set to commence production in 2018. In case you missed it, the Chairman of ENDIAMA, Mr Sumbula, mentioned the Luaxe mine in last month's ADU presentation. There isn't a great deal of information available online about the Luaxe mine, and whatever information is available it's very difficult to find. What I can tell you is that Petra Diamonds, in JV with BHP, missed the Luaxe kimberlite when they were exploring the Luangue diamond concession. For those who may not be aware, the Luangue concession adjoins Lulo's eastern boundary.


This is the full dividend breakdown for the Luaxe mine:

ENDIAMA 30%
Alrosa 30%
Artcon 15%
LLI 8.3%
Odebrecht 7.5%
Makakuima 5.2%
Polyus Gold 4%

Source: Gazette lst Series No. 136 of 5 October 2015, Presidential Decree No. 190/15


At this year's AGM, SW did mention that he's not concerned about our kimberlite % "whilst we're at the exploration stage, but when we find the pipe, when we motivate the development, when we bring the $100/ 150m, whatever the size, it will be a tier-1 mine, it's going to be a massive investment in that country - we'll go, here's the cheque, but where's our stake. So, we'll have the opportunity to negotiate, just not now."

There's certainly more than one option available to the Lulo JV partners to promote funding of a kimberlite mine, and at the end of the day the percentages which appeared in the gazette back on 18/7/2008, will imo, bear little or no resemblance when the Lulo kimberlite mine is rubber stamped by the president of Angola in the not too distant future.

Sollte der Kimberlite gefunden werden, werden die jeweiligen Anteile extrem wichtig werden. Denn dann geht es hier um das ganz große Geld. Ich befürchte, dass Lucapa dann nicht mitspielen kann (das sind andere Dimensionen). Dann werden sie ihre Anteile wohl eher veräußern (hoffentlich für viel, viel Geld).
Die weiteren Standbeine in Botswana und in Australien (seit dieser Woche) machen da durchaus Sinn.
