Banjima Native Title Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC (BNTAC), the prescribed body corporate for the Banjima People, together with BHP, today announced plans for the establishment of a Heritage Advisory Council, comprising Banjima Elders and senior BHP representatives, to provide input into mine planning at South Flank.

In its submission to the Northern Australia joint committee inquiry into Rio Tinto's Juukan Gorge blast, the Banjima Native Title Aboriginal Corporation offered rare public commentary on the interplay between traditional owners and miners.

An Aboriginal corporation which steered a successful native title claim over WA's resource rich Pilbara region says the government should have negotiated instead of going to court. The Banjima people of the Central Pilbara have won recognition of cultural rights over more than 10,000 square kilometres of land.

On 11th March 2014, the Federal Court recognised the native title rights of the Banjima People at their on-country determination held in Karijini National Park in the Central Pilbara.
