I'm sure it's *somehow* Trump's fault.

No, this was simply down the bastards in the mining company.

Western Australia is still one of those places where, when a Jewellery
Shop calls the plod because two white blokes chucked a brick through the
window, grabbed some stuff, and sped of the the south in a blue
Commodore sedan, the Senior Sergeant who turns up says, "Right, five
black bastards heaved a brick through the window, grabbed what they
could, then took off north in a white Kingswood ute."

The Northern Territory is supposedly getting better, as did Queensland a
while ago, but it's an on-going problem.

Cheers,

It's largely down to them
There's also a problem with the act where there's no source of appeal even if new details are found

Permission to destroy the caves was granted in 2013 or so by the state government
Archaelogists have found a lot more about the cave since then (including hair dating back 4000 years, 28000 year old bone tools, new dating for the site) but once the permission was granted it couldn't be revoked under the current act

Sounds like a certain ... adjustment ... may be needed to the relevant
law.

I believe it's being looked at now
Why there wasn't an adjustment in the previous 5 or so years is left as an exercise for the reader

Mining laws were often* written to benefit mining companies.

I suspect that often=always in this case, but I am not certain.
