Land Access & Future Acts

Any proposed access to the Nangaanya-ku determined area is regulated by the future acts processes in the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth).

Exploration and prospecting mineral titles

The Nangaanya-ku native title holders have developed a standard Land Access and Mineral Exploration Deed of Agreement for the purpose of permitting access for mineral exploration or prospecting activities and subsequently protecting cultural heritage sites and areas of cultural significance during the conduct of such activities.

Exploration and prospecting companies are encouraged to accept the Land Access and Mineral Exploration Agreement in its standard form to expedite the granting of the title and enable access to the relevant tenure.

If negotiations are undertaken in relation to the Land Access and Mineral Exploration Deed of Agreement, they will be conducted by Central Desert under instructions from the Nangaanya-ku native title holders. Companies may be invited to meet with the Nangaanya-ku native title holders and negotiate any outstanding issues directly.

Other mineral and petroleum titles

Specific instructions will need to be sought from the Nangaanya-ku native title holders in relation to all other applications for mineral titles and/or petroleum titles within the Nangaanya-ku determination area.
