RAPAPORT... Lucara Diamond Corp. has appointed Ayesha Hira as vice president for corporate development and strategy.

Hira is a former geologist with a background in diamonds, base metals and gold exploration. She later switched to capital markets, focusing on mining companies.

In the new role, Hira will oversee growth opportunities, including mergers and acquisitions. She will also assist Lucara CEO Eira Thomas with corporate communications and shareholder relations.

“As a geologist turned banker, Ms. Hira injects important skills and experience into our business at the right time,” Thomas said Wednesday. “She is ideally suited to leading an assessment of potential growth opportunities for Lucara going forward. She will also play an important role in strengthening our approach to corporate communications and shareholder relations for both Lucara and Clara,” she added, referring to the digital sales platform the miner acquired in February.

Hira’s appointment is effective immediately. She will be based in Vancouver, Canada.
