Kalium Lakes (Kalium Lakes, ASX:KLL) announced today that it has signed a Native Title Agreement with MNR covering the eastern tenements of the BSOPP. MNR is the registered native title body corporate that holds the native title rights and interests the subject of the Birriliburu determination area in trust for the Birriliburu People. The Birriliburu People were determined by the Federal Court as the native title holders of over 66,000 square kilometres of the Western Desert, including the area of the eastern tenements of the BSOPP, on 20 June 2008.
Managing Director, Brett Hazelden, commented:
“The conclusion of the native title agreement with MNR, together with the previous native title agreement with the now determined Gingirana People, gives Kalium Lakes full certainty in relation to the development of both stages of the BSOPP.
These agreements, together with the strong relationship the Kalium Lakes team has established with both native title groups, will lead to opportunities for all parties involved and provides a firm foundation for a long term relationship.”
