Located 90 kilometres west north-west of Fitzroy Crossing. The deposit is concealed under 4-9 metres of overburden. Under this is 1-2 thick metres
thick gravel beds containing diamonds in a paleodrainage system. 10 small diamonds totalling 1.165 ct have been recovered, and are thought to have come from weathering of the Ellendale 4 pipe.
