A Rio Tinto spokesman has confirmed that chairman Simon Thompson has met with members of the Puutu Kunti Kurrama and Pinikura people in Western Australia. Thompson was forced to quarantine for 14 days on arrival from the UK, before visiting the site where ancient indigenous rock shelters at Juukan Gorge were destroyed by Rio Tinto’s blasting program. The federal government is undertaking a parliamentary inquiry into the incident, which resulted in the departure of three senior Rio Tinto executives, including CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques.
