The Queensland resources sector has welcomed the passing of amendments to the Native Title Act, which repealed a clause demanding that all members of a registered native title claimant (RNTC) had to undersign an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA).

The amendments were made in response to an earlier Full Federal Court ruling, which found that all RNTC members, including those deceased, were required to undersign an ILUA, as defined under the current Act.
