Australian companies are the most numerous Western mining companies in Africa and have been linked to more than 380 deaths in on-site accidents and off-site skirmishes in Africa since 2004.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has used thousands of corporate records to detail how Australian companies can under-report deaths, injuries, legal actions or strikes. Never-before-seen court documents, legal complaints, community petitions, contracts and confidential company emails reveal the extent of Australia's controversial imprint across Africa. Journalists Eleanor Bell and Will Fitzgibbon discuss the investigation.
