Members of the Aboriginal community near the new Four Mile uranium mine say that they were ignored during negotiations for the mine.

Community member Jillian Marsh has completed a PhD on the Beverley mine and says the native title process is flawed.

Ms Marsh said that “the native title process is not a process that offers any decision making power for Aboriginal people.”

Ms Marsh says Aboriginal women who took part in the exploration work area clearance under the group’s native title say their concerns are not being addressed.

“Quasar Resources has actually formally stated in one of their archaeological reports that they don’t want women participating in work area clearance” she said.
