Hope Downs

Gavin Jackson Cultural Resource Management has completed a range of work over the last 8 years for Rio Tinto Iron Ore in the Hope Downs project areas.  This included archaeological surveys, basic and detailed site assessment and recording, systematic salvages and excavation of rockshelters. Surveyed areas included a rail line with associated infrastructure, pipelines, access roads and water bores. The recording was conducted with the involvement and assistance of representatives from RTIO and representatives from the relevant Traditional Owner groups, including Banjima, Nyiyaparli, Gobawarrah Minduarra Yinhawanga and Ngarlawangga.
