The Noonkanbah Project comprises of five exploration licence applications ELA 04/2694, ELA 04/2704, ELA 04/2705, ELA 04/2707 and ELA 04/2719. Odessa is the holder of all applications (other than ELA 04/2719, which is held by a wholly owned subsidiary of Odessa, OD3 Wynne).
The Noonkanbah Project area is located approximately 80 kilometres west of Fitzroy Crossing in the central Kimberley region of Western Australia. The Noonkanbah Lamproite Diamond Field covers a large area in the central part of the Fitzroy. 29 lamproites are known, 17 exposed and two concealed, ranging from a large breccia pipe (Mount Abbott), the volcanic plug of Machells Pyramid, to an isolated dyke (Mount Cedric North) and the large pluton-like body of the Walgidee Hills (the largest known Lamproite in Australia). Most of the diamond exploration in the Noonkanbah area occurred between 1969 and 1980, with only sporadic exploration in the area since that time.
