Detailed Information:
Details of the Agreement The ILUA was registered with the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) on 25 November 2013. The Extract does not specify specific start or end dates for the Agreement. However, the Extract does note that the Agreement takes effect on the Date of Determination of Native Title in favour of the Jangga People, being 9 October 2012. The Agreement will continue in effect until: (a) the Lease term expires; or (b) the date of surrender, resumption, forfeiture or termination of the Lease; or (c) the date upon which the Agreement is removed from the Register of ILUAs. The Extract does not include extensive information regarding the terms of the Agreement. Native Title Provisions The Extract notes that there are no statements within the Agreement of the kind which are mentioned in 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth). This means that the ILUA does not: - provide consent for the doing of any acts by non-native title parties; - effect the right of the native title parties to negotiate with non-native title parties proposing to undertake a future act; nor - validate any previous future acts. Native Title in the ILUA Area On 9 October 2012, the Federal Court of Australia recognised the Jangga People’s Native Title rights and interests over approximately 11,350 square kilometres of land in Central Queensland. The decision of McLennan on behalf of the Jangga People v State of Queensland [2012] FCA 1082 effectively reaffirms the Jangga People’s affinity with their traditional lands around Mount Coolon, Urella and Lake Dalrymple.
