Located 40 to 70 kilometres east south-east of Kalumburu in the King George River region of the northern Kimberley. The area is extremely remote, with virtually no viable land based access.
Small amounts of diamonds were found in the Beta Creek gravels and in nearby streams, but nothing economic.
1 valid mineral.
