Native Title Provisions:

Right to negotiate

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to this agreement.

Extinguishment

The parties agree that the non-extinguishment principle applies. This means that under s24EB (3) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) any of the activities authorised by this ILUA which may be inconsistent with native title rights and interests do not extinguish those rights and interests. Instead, they are revived when the activities are finished.

  • any activities which have a low native title impact, described in Schedule 6 of the ILUA attached below; and
  • where the Gympie Regional Council has given notice and reached consensus with the native title party, any acts which have a high native title impact, described in Schedule 7 attached below.

The acts agreed to include any dealing, grant, approval, consent and agreement necessary to give effect to any construction or ground-disturbing activity.
