Twiggy’s court win backfires on Fortescue

Andrew Forrest was recently successful in obtaining a ruling from the High Court to prevent two firms from lodging mining applications over his Minderoo cattle station in Western Australia. The ruling caused concern that other mining applications previously made in WA may not be valid, including those made by Fortescue Metals Group, which was founded by Forrest. Records show that Fortescue has made applications for 16 mining leases since the High Court ruled in Forrest’s favour, with some applications appearing to be for existing Fortescue leases.
