|Summary Information: |
|In the Waanyi ILUA for Backlog Exploration Permits the Waanyi People have agreed to the grant of Exploration Permits (EPs) 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 EPs in the 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 5 years, subject to a set of 'Native Title Conditions' specified in the agreement and provided that the Explorer has paid the compensation amount required under the agreement. EPs granted under the ILUA may be renewed, provided they remain subject to the same conditions.
On being granted an EP the grantees may conduct 'Work Activities' in the area, which are defined in the ILUA as 'activities that may be conducted under an Exploration Permit in an EP Area but limited to Level 2 Environmentally Relevant Activities.'
