Petra Diamonds Limited is pleased to confirm that it recovered a 425.10 carat D colour Type II gem quality diamond earlier today at its Cullinan Diamond Mine.

 

This recovery further demonstrates the prevalence of these types of stones in the Cullinan orebody as well as the ability of the mine's plant to recover the full spectrum of diamonds. The stone is expected to be sold during Q4 FY 2019.

 

The Company will report production and sales results for the quarter ending 31 March 2019 on Monday 15th April.

About Petra Diamonds Limited
