Summary Information:
The Reynolds Range Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was made between the Central Land Council (CLC) and Tanami Exploration NL. It provides the consent of the parties to gold exploration activities within the ILUA area.
Detailed Information:
The ILUA provides consent to, and validation for the doing of future acts within the ILUA area. This covers all matters relating to exploration licences, mineral leases and all exploration or mining activities carried out in accordance with the agreement. This includes the grant of exploration licences and mining leases, the location and development of water sources, construction, repair and maintenance of the pipeline and associated equipment as well as ongoing access to the area by the exploration company.

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply, as the alternative consultation provisions are to be followed instead.

Without this agreement, the grant of licences and leases would be invalid and the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) would apply. Under this Act, any activity such as a grant of land that may affect native title rights is defined as a 'future act' and must comply with the future act provisions of the Act in order to be valid.

The consent of the CLC on behalf of the Native Title Holders is subject to the terms and conditions set out in the ILUA.
