LUCARA PROVIDES CLARITY ON RECENT REUTERS’ ARTICLE

SEPTEMBER 19, 2017 (LUC – TSX, LUC – BSE, LUC – Nasdaq Stockholm) Lucara
Diamond Corp. (“Lucara” or the “Company”).

A proposed amendment to the Botswana Precious and Semi Precious Stones
(Protection) Act as described in a Reuters’ article released on September 18,
2017, regarding the Botswana Government’s right to purchase diamonds that are
unusually large or have unusual features at market prices, will have no impact
on Lucara Diamond Corp.'s financial position.

The bill as mentioned in the article states that ‘the price to be paid by
government for a rough or uncut precious stone offered for sale by the producer
shall be agreed by the parties in accordance with the current market price of
the rough or uncut precious stone’.

Lucara is in agreement with this policy as a way for both the government and
the Company to achieve sustainable revenue at market prices for the sale of its
diamonds.

On behalf of the Board,

William Lamb

President and CEO

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain of the statements made and contained herein in the press release and
elsewhere constitute forward-looking statements as defined in applicable
securities laws. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified
by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “expects”, “anticipates”,
“believes”, “intends”, “estimates”, “potential”, “possible” and similar
expressions, or statements that events, conditions or results “will”, “may”,
“could” or “should” occur or be achieved.

In particular, this press release may contain forward looking information
pertaining to the following: the estimates of the Company’s mineral reserves
and resources; estimates of the Company’s production and sales volumes for the
Karowe Mine; estimated costs for capital expenditures related to the Karowe
Mine; start-up, exploration and development plans and objectives; production

expectation of diamond price and changes to foreign currency exchange rates;
expectations regarding the need to raise capital; possible impacts of disputes
or litigation; and other risks and uncertainties described under the heading
“Risks and Uncertainties” in the Company’s most recent Annual Information Form
available at http://www.sedar.com (the “AIF”).

Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions, assumptions and estimates
of management as of the date such statements are made, and they are subject to
a number of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may
cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be
materially different from any future results, performance or achievement
expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such assumptions
include: the Company’s ability to obtain necessary financing; the Company’s
expectations regarding the economy generally, results of operations and the
extent of future growth and performance; and assumptions that the Company’s
activities will not be adversely disrupted or impeded by development, operating
or regulatory risk. The Company believes that expectations reflected in this
forward-looking information are reasonable but no assurance can be given that
these expectations will prove to be correct and such forward-looking
information included in this press release should not be unduly relied upon.

There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as
the Company’s results and future events could differ materially from those
anticipated in this forward-looking information as a result of those factors

Company’s AIF, as well as changes in general business and economic conditions,
changes in interest and foreign currency rates, the supply and demand for,
deliveries of and the level and volatility of prices of rough diamonds, costs
and availability of power and diesel, acts of foreign governments and the
outcome of legal proceedings, inaccurate geological and recoverability
assumptions (including with respect to the size, grade and recoverability of
mineral reserves and resources) and unanticipated operational difficulties
(including failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate in accordance
with specifications or expectations, cost escalations, unavailability of
materials and equipment, government action or delays in the receipt of
government approvals, industrial disturbances or other job actions, adverse
weather conditions, regulatory or environmental changes resulting from global
climate change and unanticipated events relating to health safety and
environmental matters).

Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these
forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date the statements were
made, and the Company does not assume any obligations to update or revise them
