High Court Rejects FMG Native Title Appeal



Australia's highest court has rejected a bid by one of the nation's largest iron ore producers to appeal a native title ruling.

The High Court on Friday dismissed Fortescue Metals Group's application to appeal a native title decision covering its Solomon iron ore mine in Western Australia.

Exclusive rights to more than 2700sq km of land in the Pilbara region, including the Solomon mine, was granted to the Yindjibarndi people by the Federal Court in 2017.
