Background to this ILUA and native title in the ILUA area

ILUA signatories Alan Douglas Hatfield, Robert Michael Muir, Rodney William Mann, Warren John Malone and Vanessa Ross represent the Darumbal People in two registered native title claims. The first of these - the Darumbal People #1 claim - was filed with the Federal Court of Australia on 27 June 1997 as proceeding QUD6131 of 1998. This claim relates to approximately 52,377 square kilometres of land in central Queensland.

The second claim - Darumbal People #2 - was filed with the Federal Court on 22 January 1999 as proceeding QUD 6001 of 1999. It covers approximately 757.6 square kilometres of land.

The two native title claims by the Darumbal People apply to the Rockhampton region of central Queensland, and also encompass offshore islands and marine areas along the Capricorn Coast. While both claims remain active, Darumbal Enterprises Pty Ltd (an entity established by the Darumbal People #1 native title claimants) has described progress on the claims as 'very slow' - largely due to the legalistic processes involved in the recognition of the Darumbal People's traditional connection to country (Darumbal Enterprises Pty Ltd 2006, 3).

As their native title claims continue to be mediated, Mr Alan Douglas Hatfield and the other ILUA signatories have entered into a number of Indigenous Land Use Agreements with respect to their claimed areas. These agreements include the Darumbal Marlborough Nickel Pipeline Indigenous Land Use Agreement, the Mt Etna Indigenous Land Use Agreement and the Darumbal Area Indigenous Land Use Agreement.
