|In the Pitta Pitta People Exploration Permit Backlog Project Indigenous Land Use Agreement(ILUA), the Pitta Pitta People have agreed to the grant of Exploration Permits (EPs) by the State of Queensland. The right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to these grants. This will enable the backlog of applications for EPs in the area, made to the State by grantees, to be processed without requiring the longer timeframes of the right to negotiate process that would otherwise apply.
EPs may be granted to an 'Explorer' for up to five years, subject to a set of 'Native Title Conditions' specified in the agreement and provided that the Explorer has paid the compensation amount required under the agreement. EPs granted under the ILUA may be renewed, provided they remain subject to the same conditions.
On being granted an EP the grantees may conduct 'Work Activities' in the area 'provided that the Explorer complies with the Native Title Conditions'.
