The frequency of recovery of these high-value +100 carat stones from MB46, highlights the
prospectivity of the Canguige catchment and adjacent priority kimberlites (Figure 1).

To date, MB46 has averaged one +100 carat diamond recovered for every ~33,000 bcm’s of gravel processed.

This is the best occurrence rate for any block mined to date at Lulo, including the prolific MB08.
