The Kurama and Marthudunera (K&M) people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia are pleased to announce an agreement with Iron Ore miners Red Hill Iron Ltd (RHI). The agreement covers RHI’s Pannawonica project, about 120 km south of Cape Preston.

Negotiations were completed in approximately six months, with the resulting agreement giving RHI native title approvals for its project. The K&M people will receive financial benefits and compensation from the company, which reflects the importance to the K&M people of minimising the impact of mining projects on their traditional country.
