Rio Tinto is one of the largest mining companies in the world and is operating in many territories and in particular in Australia. The demolition took place on May 24th despite a seven-year long battle waged by the local keepers of the sacred land, the Puutu Kunti Kurrama and the Pinikura people, to protect the site in question. “We are sorry for the anguish we have caused. Our relationship with the Pkkp is very important for Rio Tinto, who has worked together for many years, “he said Chris Salisbury, CEO of Rio Tinto Iron Ore, in a note. “We will continue to work with the Pkkp to learn from what has happened and strengthen our partnership. Urgently, we are reviewing the plans of all the other sites in the Juukan gorge area. ” The company therefore stated that it had acted under a “global and mutually agreed upon” agreement since 2011.
