Argyle diamond mine’s traditional owners turn to native seeds in bid to restore country | ABC News

The iconic Argyle mine, 3,000 kilometres north of Perth, was a production powerhouse for almost four decades, producing more than 90 per cent of the world’s supply of pink diamonds.
Early this month, the very last of the rare, precious gems were mined from the site.
Traditional owners have a connection with this ancient landscape that spans generations — all the way back to the ‘barramundi dreaming’.
