BHP struck the Olympic Dam Agreement with the Kokatha, the Kuyani and the Barngarla people in 2008. However, a native title ruling in 2014 deemed that the Kokatha people were the sole traditional owners of the land that encompasses the Olympic Dam copper mine. The Kokatha people contend that the existing agreement is outdated and must be replaced, and that BHP should not be consulting with the Kuyani and the Barngarla with regard to the management of heritage sites for which they no longer have any native title rights. BHP in turn contends that the terms of the 2008 agreement require it to consult with all three indigenous groups.
