Lake Torrens in South Australia is a sacred site and place of deep cultural significance to Kokatha, Adnyamathanha, Kuyani and Barngarla peoples. However government approval has been granted to exploratory drilling company Kelaray (a subsidiary of Argonaut Resources) to begin drilling at this vulnerable site.
This week on Earth Matters guest producer Joy Lothian from Aboriginal Way Radio at Radio Adelaide speaks with Kokatha Senior Lawman Andrew Starkey and the CEO of SA Native Title Services Keith Thomas about the very deep concerns that Traditional Owners and communities in this region have regarding this latest exploratory mining project at Lake Torrens.
