Joint Standing Committee Inquiry appearance 

CME welcomed the opportunity to appear on September 17 before the Joint Standing Committee on Northern Australia Inquiry into the destruction of 46,000yearold caves at the Juukan Gorge in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. 

The focus of CME’s contribution to the Inquiry was the importance of the resources sector’s relationships with the Traditional Owners and custodians of land and heritage in Western Australia. 

CME Chief Executive Paul Everingham reinforced the sector’s long-term commitment to these partnerships, and the agreements that underpin many of them. 

The Committee has received an extension to its reporting date to 9 December 2020, and have indicated that further public hearings are planned for coming months.  

No questions on notice were requested by the Committee during the Chamber’s appearance.
