Engaging Community Partners
At the request of the indigenous Traditional Owners, the project is known as Amrun. This is the Wik-Waya-language name for the Boyd Bay area where the new mine will be built.
Before work on the project began, Rio Tinto and the Wik-Waya Traditional Owners collaborated to develop the Amrun Communities, Heritage, and Environment Management Plan. Bechtel ensures that work at the project aligns with the plan, which provides a framework whereby Rio Tinto, Bechtel, and Traditional Owners work together on managing the land in a way that meets business needs and Traditional Owner aspirations through construction and into operations.
