Gibb River Diamonds secured three critical mining leases, which are vital for its Ellendale Diamond Project in Western Australia.

The leases cover key areas of historical diamond workings, signalling progress in project advancement.

The company is now focused on obtaining necessary mining permits. Securing the leases boosts prospects for financing and initial mining operations, particularly at the Lights Stockpile at E9.

A heritage clearance survey with Bunuba Traditional Owners is scheduled for early June.
