Details of the Agreement

According to Kalkadoon Community Pty Ltd, the Constitutional ILUA establishes the following principles of governance:
'1. All Kalkadoon organisations are accountable to the Kalkadoon people.
2. All Kalkadoon organisations commit to a statement of values and all office holders are bound by a Code of Conduct.
3. An independent probity officer has the power to attend meetings, access books and records of all Kalkadoon corporations and to investigate complaints.
4. The Board of Kalkadoon's organisations can have no more than one board member from any one Kalkadoon family to ensure participation in each corporation is spread evenly across the Kalkadoon community.
5. All Kalkadoon organisations acknowledge the importance of Kalkadoon elders in protecting traditional knowledge, custom and law.' (Nicole Courtman, Indigenous Corporate Partners).

Native Title Provisions

The Extract notes that there are no statements within the Agreement of the kind which are mentioned in 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are not triggered by this agreement.

This means that the ILUA does not:
- provide consent for the doing of any acts by non-native title parties;
- effect the right of the native title parties to negotiate with non-native title parties proposing to undertake a future act; nor
- validate any previous future acts.

Native Title in the ILUA Area

In Kalkadoon People #4, The Federal Court of Australia made a determination recognising the native title rights and interests of the Kalkadoon people over nearly 40,000 square kilometres in the mineral rich Greater Mount Isa Region of North West Queensland. The determination covered 38,719 square kilometres of land and waters in the Mt Isa region, including areas of reserves, unallocated State land, pastoral leases and other leases.

The consent determination and associated Indigenous Land Use Agreement recognises the Kalkadoon People's exclusive native title rights over 4078 square kilometres of land and non-exclusive native title rights over about 33,432 square kilometres of land and waters.
