Mineral wealth excluded from compo claim: Power

Fortescue Metals Group chief executive Nev Power says the value of minerals would be excluded from its looming compensation battle against the Yindjibarndi people, but that claim has been disputed by the native title group's legal team.

No amount of money will probably ever be adequate to compensate the Yindjibarndi people for their loss of cultural and ceremonial access, however, it is unconscionable for Fortescue Metals Group CEO Nev Power to float the suggestion that the value of minerals would be excluded from the claim for compensation. It's time to make some sort of retribution for the damage the Yindjibarndi have suffered for far too long at the hands of Fortescue Metals Group.
