Subject Matter:Mining and Minerals | Native Title | Future Act | Land Use
Summary Information:
Under the Wakamin People and Australian Fine Grain Marble Pty Ltd #2 Indigenous Land Use Agreement, the Wakamin, the native title applicants for the area, consent to the grant of mining tenements and ancillary rights to Australian Fine Grain Marble for their proposed mining project.

The parties agree that the grant of the mining tenements is a 'future act' (an act that may affect native title rights) under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), which without this ILUA would attract the right to negotiate. However, under the terms of the ILUA, the right will not apply.
