Summary Information:
In the Kalkadoon and Indjalandji / Dithannoi Peoples Backlog Exploration Permit Project Indigenous Land Use Agreement the Kalkadoon and Indjalandji / Dithannoi Peoples 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 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 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. On being granted an EP, the grantees may conduct 'Work Activities' in the area. The activities are 'limited to Level 2 Environmentally Relevant Activities', which are defined in the Environmental Protection Act 1994 (Qld)).

EPs granted under the ILUA may be renewed, provided they remain subject to the conditions of the agreement.
