GIPL is seeking expressions of interest for Consultants for the Five Year GGF Foundation Review


The General Gumala Foundation was established in 1997 as a result of the Yandi Land Use Agreement between Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd (a subsidiary of Rio Tinto) and the Banjima, Nyiyaparli and Yinhawangka people, who are recognized as the Traditional Owners of the land at the core of Hamersley Iron’s Yandi iron ore mining operation in the Pilbara.

The review is scheduled to commence in November 2023, with the final Review report expected to be delivered to the Foundation no later than 29 February 2024.
