Let's face it, the same thing would have happened in the US at this point. We have lots of work to do.

Wonder how many of the "local and indigenous groups" they had to pay off...and how much it's going to cost them. Of course, we all know there will be fine print and loopholes, maybe mining costs to subsidiaries and/or taxes, before those lucky (?) people will benefit from anything - if they ever will.

I don't think this area is agricultural, but when will humans realize we can't live on gold, silver, bronze, other precious metals or jewels and we need to do everything to save planet earth.

Now that the go-ahead has been given, I do hope the indigenous population have excellent negotiators to strike a deal that really benefits them with employment, infrastructure, health and housing projects,...but who am I kidding, where big companies get their hands on huge resources, little of any significance will go to anyone but the company and it's shareholders.
