PRESS RELEASE 


On Saturday 19th May, 2018 a stone believed to be a diamond was discovered in Heremakono in Nimikoro Chiefdom, Kono district by Ezekiel Kabbah Sumana
The stone was brought down to Freetown and handed over to the Vice President who in pursuance of our government’s commitment to transparency and accountability accordingly contacted the National Minerals Agency (NMA) for testing and verification.
As per procedure, the National Minerals Agency conducted the necessary tests in the presence of the owners, the press and some government officials. Below is the report of the various authenticity tests
The Diamond test carried out using the instrument called “Presidium Duotester” This is the same instrument used to test Diamonds in ANTWERP, Belgium.  It makes use of the fact that Diamond conducts heat better than any known Diamond simulant.  The first test involved use of a real Diamond and the result was positive.  The second test was carried out on the stone alleged to be Diamond and the result was negative.  Both tests were carried out in full view of the owners of the said stone alleged to be a Diamond.
In conclusion, the stone alleged to be a Diamond is not a Diamond based on the test result.
