Notes "Prepared by the Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation., August, 2010."--Cover.
Summary Summarises the activities of the Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation in its mission to meet the needs and aspirations of its owners and constituents, the Mirarr people. Mirarr is the name of an Aboriginal clan whose traditional estate is located in the Kakadu region of the Northern Territory in Australia. Uranium mining has operated on Mirarr land for more than 25 years. Mirarr opposed the establishment of uranium mining on their lands, and continue to oppose further development of both the Ranger and Jabiluka uranium mines. Mirarr established Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation, an incorporated body, to assist them to manage a balance between sustainable development and traditional practice on their land, and to direct income from mining royalties towards the establishment and maintenance of outstation infrastructure and essential services. The most serious concern of Mirarr is the destruction of country and the decline of traditional culture which will result from continued mining on Mirarr land. Mirarr country encompasses the Ranger and Jabiluka Mineral Leases, the mining town of Jabiru and parts of Kakadu National Park. This is confirmed by Bininj (Aboriginal) law and by balanda (non-Aboriginal) law under the Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Act 1976.
