The identification and management of Aboriginal cultural heritage sites is fundamental to Fortescue's approach to sustainable operations and the company’s commitment to protect and promote Aboriginal history and culture.


Fortescue’s dedicated Heritage team has full-time representatives based in Perth and at each of our mines - Christmas Creek, Cloudbreak and Solomon, and regularly works across the Pilbara in Fortescue’s exploration and development areas.

Fortescue works closely with the traditional owners of the land where we operate to ensure that heritage sites are protected wherever possible and to comply with statutory obligations under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (AHA), as well as obligations to our Native Title partners.
