Recent data from the DAMA/LIBRA phase-2 confirmed detection of a signal with independent Dark Matter (DM) annual modulation signature at a 12.9 σ CL. Our attempts to verify the DAMA/LIBRA DM observation claim led to construction of underground clean rooms at the KamLAND site and specialized laboratory for production of NaI(Tl) detectors. Current status of these facilities, methods used to grow ultra-low background NaI(Tl) crystals, and radio-purity of the latest NaI(Tl) DM detector prototype are discussed.
