Gibb River Diamonds provided an update on its Ellendale Diamond Project in Western Australia.

The company is conducting a crucial fauna and flora survey in preparation for mining at Ellendale 9, with consultancy firm Animal Plant Mineral.

The survey, commencing on April 2, aims to support permit applications. Wet weather has caused slight delays, and they're awaiting mining lease grants, pending ministerial signature.

The company has secured a mining benefits agreement with Bunuba Dawangarri Aboriginal Corporation and is seeking ministerial approval.
