Exhibit Analysis: 

In 1958 Pindan returned to mining, embarking on a joint manganese mining project with Albert Sims and Co, through a syndicate company called Simdan. However, discontent within Pindan led to upheaval in the company’s affairs and to McLeod’s resignation in 1959. Pindan became a wholly Aboriginal company. This photograph of the Pindan shareholders with their wives was taken by the anthropologist John Wilson.
