BMIEA

(Burrup and Maitland Industrial Estates Agreement)

The three Contracting Parties (comprising the Ngarluma-Yindjibarndi, Wong-Goo-Tt-Oo, and Yaburara Mardudhunera) received land entitlements and financial benefits as compensation for surrendering their native title rights and interests, and discontinuing their Native Title Determination Applications in the Federal Court, over the land and waters of the Burrup. This was documented by the WA Government with what is known as the BMIEA in 2003.

MAC is the approved body corporate for the BMIEA. MAC oversees the implementation and contractual obligations of the agreement.
