|The Kajeena Mining Company Pty Ltd/CLC Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the Kajeena Mining Company and the Central Land Council.

|Contents of this ILUA|
This ILUA allowed for renewals of the Kajeena Mining Company's Exploration Licences and validated any future exploration activity in the agreement area. Without this ILUA, the grant of the Exploration Licences and the undertaking of future exploration may have been invalid, or it may have attracted the right to negotiate and the future act provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth).
The Central Land Council represented the native title holders in this ILUA. The native title holders' consent to the exploration was given subject to certain conditions. The ILUA included the following conditional provisions:
This ILUA was to remain in force for 6 years from the date of registration (13 November 2002), or until the last EL or renewal of an EL expires. The ILUA also set out processes for extending this time period and making amendments to the agreement.
Removal from the Register
This ILUA has now been removed from the National Native Title Tribunal Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements. It was removed under s 199C(1)(c)(i) of the Native Title Act 1993, which allows the removal of an ILUA from the Register if a party advises the Registrar in writing that the agreement has expired, and the Registrar believes, on reasonable grounds, that it has expired.
