Juukan Gorge inquiry to deliver final report

News / Event start date

A federal parliamentary inquiry is set to deliver its final report into Rio Tinto's destruction of the ancient Juukan Gorge rock shelters in Western Australia.

Rio blew up the 46,000-year-old caves on Puutu Kunti Kurrama and Pinikura country in May 2020, devastating the traditional owners.

The mining giant had legal permission to destroy the caves under WA's long-criticised Aboriginal Heritage Act but has since conceded it breached the PKKP's trust.
