Section 29 notices for native title

Under section 29 of the Native Title Act 1993, the notification process is triggered when addressing native title rights and interests through the expedited procedure and right-to-negotiate process. Common examples of the types of resource authorities notified are proposed:

  • grants of mining leases and claims
  • grants of exploration permits
  • additions of excluded land to exploration permits
  • grants of authorities to prospect
  • mineral development licences
  • resource authority renewals that increase the right to mine
  • variations to resource authority conditions that increase the right to mine.

The notification must occur in both:

  • a newspaper that circulates throughout the related area
  • a relevant special interest publication such the Koori Mail, catering mainly for the interests of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The notices are referred to as section 29 notices. You can find details of the notice requirements in the Native title guideline: Notification and advertising process (PDF, 596KB).
