Cultural Heritage Management at Brockman 4, Pilbara, Western Australia

23rd November 2014

Wade, VictoriaOver recent years Rio Tinto, collaboratively with Puutu Kunti Kurrama and Pinikura Traditional Owners, has been managing cultural heritage in the vicinity of the Brockman 4 operational mine site. This has involved numerous programmes of survey, site recording, excavation and salvage. A constant challenge faced throughout this process is finding creative and meaningful ways of managing salvaged material, preserving and sharing memories of sites into the future. This poster presents some of the collaborative management strategies employed at Brockman 4, including interpretive artefact and scarred tree displays, latex peels of excavation trench walls and aerial videography.
