Jeffrey Lee is the only surviving member of the Djok clan in Australia. At 36 years old, he is also the senior custodian of the Koongarra uranium deposit.
Previously the aboriginal owner of the land (and mineral rights) imposed a 5 year moratorium on developing mining interests. But now that is expired and Mr. Lee has stated he will never allow the 14,000 tons of uranium to be extracted.
Areva, a French energy company, is pressuring for rights to begin mining the $5 billion deposit. The only thing that stands in the way of this company and billions in profit is one man.
Notably, Jeffery Lee has no children and is the only surviving member of the Djok clan. I always thought it took more than one person to be considered a “clan.” With no heir, the land (and mineral deposit) will be up for grabs after Mr. Lee passes on. There will be no one with a legal claim to represent the defunct Djok clan interests.
Therefore, The Incontiguous Brick nominates Jeffery Lee as the “most likely to be killed for corporate profit.” Perhaps if he was older, they would be wiling to wait, but at only 36 he could prevent development for too many decades.
I am sure it will look like an accident.
