Many Australian mining projects in Africa are outposts of good governance - this is what Julie Bishop, the country's Foreign Minister, told the Africa Down Under mining conference in Western Australia in September 2017.

The Australian government "encourages the people of Africa to see us as an open-cut mine for lessons-learned, for skills, for innovation and, I would like to think, inspiration," the minister said.

But such claims sit uneasily with the highly critical findings arising from a detailed investigation by the International Consortium of Independent Journalists (ICIJ).
