Details of the Agreement

Commencement and Termination

The ILUA commenced when signed by all the parties (14 July 2020) and will continue in perpetuity. It has effect as an ILUA and in relation to the agreed future acts from the date of registration (17 November 2020).

Native Title Provisions

Right to negotiate

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to any future acts agreed to under the ILUA.

Extinguishment

The parties agree that the non-extinguishment principle applies. This means that under s 24EB(3) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) any activities authorised by this ILUA that are inconsistent with native title rights and interests do not extinguish those rigts and interests. Instead they will be revived when the activities are finished.

Future act provisions

The parties acknowledge that, within thirty days of the registration of the ILUA, the Northern Territory of Australia's Minister for Lands, Planning and the Environment will publish a Notice of Aquisition in the Gazette in relation to NT Portion 6326(A) in accordance with s 46(1A) of the Lands Aquisition Act 1978 (NT) and this will have the effect of granting a freehold title over NT Portion 6326(A) to the Irrulangkwele Aboriginal Corporation.

The grant is subject to the Northern Territory, within a reasonable time of the publication, having granted an easement over Perpetual Pastoral Lease 989 (Mount Riddock) to provide access to NT Portion 6326(A).
