Mountain Province Diamonds Announces the Inclusion of 157 Carat Exceptional Rough Diamond in its February Sale

(PRESS RELEASE) TORONTO and NEW YORK — Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. (“Mountain Province”, or the “Company”) (TSX: MPVD) (OTCQX: MPVD) announces the upcoming sale of the largest gem quality diamond recovered to date from the Gahcho Kué mine, located in Canada’s Northwest Territories.

The diamond is a 157.38 carat gem of exceptional quality. Named “Polaris” after the North Star, this diamond exhibits a rare natural blue fluorescence that echoes its Canadian Arctic origins.

Reid Mackie, the Company’s vice president Diamond Marketing said, “We are thrilled to offer Polaris at our upcoming February sale. It is an extraordinary stone, recovered at the end of an extraordinary year. Polaris, the North Star, is an enduring touch point of light for those navigating under northern skies. It remains a celestial constant as the earth rotates and the seasons change. We take inspiration from this stone and the beautiful light suspended within it, as we, our customers, and indeed the world, navigate forward to more positive times.”

Polaris will be offered for sale at Mountain Province’s second sale of the year at Bonas Group’s offices in Antwerp. Included in the offering are more than thirty, high quality +10.8 carat rough diamonds as well as the Company’s customary run-of-mine assortments.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
