    Summary Information:
    The Work Area Clearance Agreement is a template Future Act Agreement provided by the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT).

    It is envisaged by the NNTT that these agreements will be used to assist Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to negotiate Future Act Agreements that can be tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

    The Work Area Clearance Agreement is designed to be used for negotiations between a mining exploration company and a native title party.

    The template agreement covers matters including:
    (a) stipulating that the mining exploration company will provide the native title party with a copy of their Work Programme, and will only undertake activities in accordance with that programme;
    (b) sites of significance and the possible discovery of cultural items;
    (c) employment of members of the native title party; and
    (d) environmental protection.
    Detailed Information:
    The NNTT has issued template agreements covering six categories, being:
    1. Future Act Agreements
    2. Intra-Aboriginal Agreements
    3. Mediation Withdrawal Agreements
    4. Negotiating Framework Agreements
    5. Pastoral Agreements
    6. Reconciliation Agreements Principals.
