Business case development
Nation Partners worked as part of an integrated team on Stage 2 of the Rum Jungle Rehabilitation project. Rum Jungle is a former copper and uranium mine and activities on the site have led to significant environmental impacts. The mine site was excluded from a grant to the Finniss River Land Trust due to the concerns of the site’s joint traditional Aboriginal owners. A decision in respect of the grant is still pending.
Our team worked with the Northern Territory and Commonwealth governments under a Project Agreement. We provided specialist input to stakeholder consultation, risk assessment, option assessment and rehabilitation planning processes.
The Commonwealth is committed to supporting capacity-building opportunities for Aboriginal owners. Our team at Nation Partners has formed successful partnerships with local stakeholders to optimise Indigenous participation and leadership.
Nation Partners was also appointed to undertake consultation with the various Traditional Owner groups and to identify opportunities for socio-economic improvements. Our team completed a baseline socio-economic review, a preliminary skills audit, engaged with various Indigenous groups and prepared a social development plan.
