Lucara is a well positioned emerging new diamond producer. The Company has an
experienced board and management team with years of diamond development
expertise. The Company's two key assets are the AK6 diamond mine in Botswana
and the Mothae diamond mine in Lesotho. The 100% owned AK6 project is in the
construction stage with mine commissioning scheduled to commence in the first
quarter of 2012. The 75% owned Mothae mine is currently in the trial mining
stage. Both Mothae and AK6 are large scale assets with tonnage and throughput
upside; diamond values from both could significantly increase with the
continued recovery of Type IIA and large stones.

On Behalf of the Board,

 

William Lamb

President and CEO
