The reference states this possible lamproite pipe is 72 kilometres south-east of Derby. During exploration work in the 1990's, one microdiamond was recovered. No more details are known. It has been included as a reference should any further discoveries be made.

The Mindat co-ordinates are a suggestion only, and needs confirmation. It is based on the observance that the diamond prospects near the Fitzroy River are invariably tied to the Fitzroy Volcanics, with the site chosen the only occurrence of this rock in the area.
