Australia | Mining company gives in, will share internal review of decision to raze Aboriginal site

Rio Tinto has caved to demands to release an internal review into its bungled decision to destroy a 46,000-year-old Aboriginal heritage site in Western Australia, due for completion in October, after initially saying it would provide key findings only to the government.

On Friday the company appointed a former Australian high commissioner to the UK, Michael L’Estrange, to lead the review into the destruction of Juukan Gorge, following weeks of criticism from major shareholders, the fracturing of its relationship with traditional owners, and the establishment of a Senate inquiry.
