Australian mining companies linked to deaths in Africa

From Nine To Noon, 9:39 am on 3 August 2015

Australian mining companies operating in Africa have been caught up in allegations of corruption, tax avoidance, environmental destruction and human rights abuses. 150 Australian companies operate across 33 countries in Africa. A new report by the US based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists finds that since the beginning of 2004, more than 380 people have died in mining accidents or in off-site skirmishes connected to these companies. Will Fitzgibbon is the lead investigator on the report.
