Australian owned mining company, OM Manganese, is the first mining company to be taken to court for mining on sacred land.

Two Women Sitting Down at Bootu Creek mine, was said to be off limits, however blasting took place 25m away from the site.

OM Manganese was fined $150 000 due to explosives breaking up ground in July 2011. It was declared guilty for the damage done, but none for desecration.
