Tianda Resources Pty Ltd Yarrie Drilling Program

This project was conducted in 2012 and comprised an archaeological and ethnographic survey of the Tianda Resources Yarrie Drill Program.  The survey area was located on Yarrie Station,  75km northeast of Marble Bar in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. The project involved a work program clearance of drill lines and associated access tracks. The purpose of the survey was to locate and record any Aboriginal archaeological sites to a level sufficient for appropriate avoidance and management strategies to be implemented. The project involved working closely with representatives from the Njamal native title claim group.
