Summary Information:
In the Djungan People Exploration Permit Backlog Project Indigenous Land Use Agreement the Djungan People have agreed to the grant of Exploration Permits (EPs) and Mineral Development Licences (MDLs) 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 tenements in the agreement 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 conditions specified in the agreement. Explorers may be granted an MDL, also subject to conditions. On being granted a tenement, the grantees may conduct 'Exploration Activities' in the area, in line with the conditions.

EPs and MDLs granted under the ILUA may be renewed, provided they remain subject to the conditions of the agreement and the grantee has paid an amount specified in the agreement.
