Winchelsea Mining Pty Ltd (WM) is majority owned (currently at 60% ownership), by the traditional owners of Akwamburrkba Island. The name of this ORIC Corporation is Anindilyakwa Advancement Aboriginal Corporation. By mid-2022 it is proposed that direct shipping of high grade manganese ore would commence being exported. Profits from mining will repay the cost of infrastructure over the life of the mine with surplus being available to invest in the development of a world class seafood export industry.
