Pilbara Native Title Claims
There are 26 native title claims in the Pilbara region, many of which are represented by the Yamatji Marlpa Aboriginal Corporation, the native title representative body for the region. To date there has been one litigated determination in the region and six consent determinations with an additional five land use agreements negotiated. See the table below for a listing of current claims in the region.
The State is currently in discussion with four claim groups and four determined native title holders to build a streamlined post-determination relationship about future land use, management and development. This relationship is to be formalised through an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) between the State and native title party.
