Summary Information:
The Mt Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between the Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation and the Northern Territory of Australia.

The purpose of the ILUA is to provide consent for a Crown Lease over part of the agreement area and the surrender and extinguishment of native title rights and interests over the whole of the agreement area.
Detailed Information:
The parties consent to:
•the grant of a Crown Lease, for no monetary consideration, to Lhere Artepe's nominee for the development of part A of the ILUA Area;
•the surrender and extinguishment of native title over both part A and B of the ILUA area;
•the doing of any future acts agreed to in the ILUA; and
•the payment of an agreed amount of compensation to native title holders for any loss, diminution, impairment or extinguishment of native title within the ILUA area in lieu of any other compensation payable under the Native Title Act.

Without this agreement, the grant would have been 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.
