Barrick’s partnership with the Wiradjuri people of Australia has been recognized by the Lachlan Catchment Management Authority, winning its Aboriginal Partnership Award. Percy Knight, CEO of the Wiradjuri Condobolin Corporation, noted that the Wiradjuri community has benefited from its 2003 Native Title Agreement with Barrick.

With the opening of the Wiradjuri Studies Center in September, supported by Barrick, positive programs and results will continue.

Knight said, “The result will be a vibrant, independent, sustainable and self-determining Aboriginal community.”
