April 23, 2018
Lucara Has Helped Transform the Lives of Botswanans
Lucara Diamond Corp. is a Canadian diamond mining company with a producing mine and exploration licenses in Botswana. They are a leader in the industry for their exacting, ethical standards of diamond mining. Lucara’s mine is called “Karowe,” which means “precious stone” in the local language, was commissioned in 2012 and today generates revenues of over $200 million per year.
However, Lucara isn’t just focused on making a profit to the exclusion of everything else. The company emphasizes a healthy and safe work environment and creating a positive economic and social impact on local communities where they operate. Before the diamond industry came to Botswana, the average life expectancy was just 37 years old. Today, the average Botswanan lives 66 years.
