Recorded live at The Northern Miner‘s inaugural Diamonds in Canada Symposium in Toronto in June 2018, this episode features in-depth “fireside” chats with two Canadian diamond mining icons: Canadian Mining Hall of Fame inductee and Diavik co-discoverer Grenville Thomas and his daughter Eira Thomas, president and CEO of Lucara Diamond.
Gren tells about how he got into mining, shares the excitement of the Diavik discovery, and gives his views on the current state of Canadian diamond exploration.
Eira offers her own perspective of the Diavik discovery and updates on us Lucara’s efforts to recover mega-size diamonds. She also discusses Lucara’s new interest in M&A, and its intention to shake up the diamond selling system via a new acquisition named Clara Diamond Solutions Corporation.
