Members and staff of Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) express their deep condolences to family and friends of the young man who recently died on Mirarr country. The accident on Monday afternoon occurred in Kakadu close to the Ranger Uranium Mine.

The GAC and our Djurrubu ranger group are working closely with Parks Australia and mine operator Energy Resources of Australia to avoid a tragic event like this from occuring again.

This tragic loss of life weighs very heavily on the Mirarr traditional owners and their staff. Our hearts go out to all those affected by this terrible tragedy.
