Mountain Province Finds 95-ct Diamond
Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. announced on May 30th, 2018, the recovery of a 95-carat gem diamond from the Gahcho Kué mine located in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The diamond was included in the fancies and specials parcel acquired by Mountain Province in the most recent Gahcho Kué production split.
The diamond recovered was a 95-carat white octahedron of top clarity. It is the largest gem quality stone and the fourth largest stone recovered from the mine since production commenced less than two years ago. Reid Mackie, the company’s vice president, Diamond Marketing, said, “The recovery of this diamond firmly establishes Mountain Province as a reliable producer of exceptional, high quality Canadian diamonds in very large sizes and bodes well for the future discovery of similar gems.”
The 95-carat diamond will be presented at Mountain Province’s upcoming rough diamond tender with viewings to be held from June 11th to 22nd in Antwerp, Belgium.
