Crisis in this paper:
Rio Tintos Juukan Gorge crisis
In late May of 2020 a Rio Tinto spokesperson confirmed blasting in Juukan Gorge had occurred and that the Juukan Gorge ancient rock shelters were destroyed.
This action caused global outrage as it became clear that Rio Tinto had destroyed culturally significant sites dating back more than 46,000 years. The most precious piece destroyed were artifacts that provided evidence of continual human habitation and a genetic link going back 4,000 years.
This created a significant crisis for Rio Tinto and had major global impacts on the firm and its executives which are still ongoing.
