Queensland Pacific Metals respects the unique and important association Traditional Landowners and local Indigenous communities have for ‘Country’ – the land, environment, culture and a traditional way of life.
A strong relationship has been established with The Bindal People, Traditional Owners of the Lansdown site where the TECH Project will be constructed, with a view to building and sustaining cooperative relations.
A Cultural Heritage Management Agreement (CHMA) was finalised with the Bindal People in early 2021 and will ensure any Aboriginal Cultural Heritage within the CHMA Area is identified, protected from harm and managed in accordance with the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act.
The company has committed to enter into a Heads of Agreement regarding Indigenous employment, training, apprenticeships and other opportunities and will work with the Traditional Owners to outline the skills required for roles and identify suitable candidates.
The company’s Indigenous Engagement strategy will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as it continues to engage with the Bindal People and other Indigenous Australians in the greater Townsville region.
