In NSW traditional owners have expressed concern about lack of transparency over a recent native title agreement with a coal company.
The native title deal followed four years of negotiations as 18 elected Aboriginal representatives from across North West NSW came to an agreement with Whitehaven Coal at a closed meeting in Tamworth on Monday.
A press release issued by Whitehaven Coal says the agreement will see the Gomeroi people working with Whitehaven, on how the groups will collaborate on improved communications and cultural heritage matters .
But the deal has surprised and caused concern for many with Senior Gomeroi Elder Uncle Neville Sampson stating it is invalid because it had not received approval from the wider community.
Gomeroi woman Dolly Talbott told CAAMA Radio the lack of transparency has created conflict between her people and says many of her people don’t even know what the deal entails.
- The rocky road ahead for mining and gas exploration in the Territory…….
Traditional owners may have won the battle to save Watarrka National Park from fracking – but the war of war of words between the Central Land Council and the Northern Territory Giles CLP Government is set to continue.
Northern Territory Minister for Mines and Energy Dave Tollner announced on Tuesday that an oil and gas exploration permit will not be issued to Palatine Energy because the application did not satisfy new land use measures which “ensure activities can proceed alongside other land usages in a safe and sustainable manner.”
N.T. Government Minister for Parks and Wildlife Bess Price and Central Land Council Director David Ross share their thoughts about the future of mining on Aboriginal land across the Territory.
