The agreement is the second and final Native Title Agreement for the development of Butcherbird Manganese Project and grant of M52/1074. It provides a beneficial position for both KNAC and Nyiyaparli people.
The company is seeking to expedite the grant of M52/1074 for the development of the project.
Terms underlying the agreement
According to the agreement, the Nyiyaparli people are deemed to have traditional ownership of the land. This was a result of an approved determination by the Federal Court of Australia on 26th September 2018. The approval pertains to the native title with respect to the native title determination applications numbered WAD 6280 of 1998 (Nyiyaparli Claim) and WAD 196 of 2013 (Nyiyaparili #3 Claim that native title exists in the Determination Area and is owned by the people of Nyiyaparli). KNAC is recognised as the registered native title body holding native title rights concerning the land and interests the subject of the area in trust for the people of Nyiyaparli.
Element 25 Limited, through effective communication, engagement and consultation, bolstered its relationship with KNAC and Nyiyaparli people. The agreement is said to provide KNAC and the people of Nyiyaparli a chance to participate in the project along with future royalties, which would help build a mutually beneficial relationship amongst the parties to the deal.
In order to cut down the carbon intensity of the project and reduce energy costs, E25 has also resolved to integrate renewable energy into the power solution.
According to Justin Brown, Executive Director of Element 25 Limited and Nick Preece, the CEO of Karlka Nyiyaparli Aboriginal Corporation, the deal would be a great success for the parties and will be advantageous in their development in the long run. Going forward, Element 25 has certain chances of development of the Butcherbird Manganese project and is set to build a strong relationship with the people of Nyiyaparli and Ngarlawangga.
