INFORMATION SHEETS

Information Sheet 68 Notice of entry : your rights
If you have received a Notice of Entry onto Native Title Land from an explorer it is important you have the right information to understand the process.

Information Sheet 69 Agreement making and compensation : your rights

Landowners may enter into an agreement with a tenement holder that lays out the conditions for access to your land.  Agreements are a way to legally document  commitments between parties and describe the behaviours expected from the tenement holder and their contractor personnel who wish to conduct operations on the land. 

Information Sheet 71 Exempt Land : court-imposed conditions and compensation

Where you and the explorer or miner are unable to come to an agreement in relation to exempt land, you or the explorer or miner may apply to the court for a determination  to be made on the proposed operations. In South Australia a  determination can be made by the Warden’s Court,  Environment, Resources and Development Court or the  Supreme Court.

Information Sheet 72 Exempt Land : supporting landowners with legal fees

As an owner of exempt land, when you are approached by an explorer or miner about operations that could impact on your land, you  may wish to obtain legal advice to assist you to understand your rights and determine whether or not you should waive the benefit of your exemption.

Information Sheet 73 Applying to the Small Business Commissioner : your rights

If you are the owner of land that is used for a primary production business — eg horticulture, viticulture or agriculture, and an explorer or miner wants access to that land, you have the right to seek mediation under the Small Business Commissioner’s Fair Trading (Mining and Resources Industry Land Access Dispute Resolution Code) Regulations 2018.
