Thunderbird Rangers recruited for construction

Sheffield Resources has launched the Thunderbird Rangers, with the recruitment of Roneill Skeen of Looma, who joins Thunderbird Ranger Terry Marshall of Bidan, as Sheffield builds its on-country team.

Located mid-way between Derby and Broome, construction of Thunderbird is planned to commence later this year. Thunderbird offers local, inter-generational jobs and business opportunities over 42 years, at the drive-in drive-out mineral sands mine site, and at Derby and Broome ports, from where the products will be exported.

Sheffield Managing Director Bruce McFadzean, said that the rangers will perform a vital function in the development of Thunderbird, and at the same time connection to country can be maintained in their roles as Thunderbird Rangers.

"Working on-country can strengthen culture, heritage and connection to country, which underpins success in jobs and in indigenous development.

"I envision the Thunderbird Rangers helping to manage the mine site land for many decades and transferring their jobs to their children's children, so that over generations, culture is maintained through meaningful on-country employment."
