Mining operation uncovers aboriginal remains in Australia

Three sets of ancient remains have been found in a remote region of Australia.

This is where our most important law men were buried,” said Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation chief executive Michael Woodley, a senior law man and respected tribal elder. He led healing ceremonies for his people near one burial cave after rock movement – apparently due to exploratory drilling nearby – exposed the first set of remains.

The burial complex was described as ”… a highly important and significant site” in one FMG archaeological report sent to the Western Australian Department of Indigenous Affairs, and seen by The Saturday Age.
