Abstract: A balanced, good paper on the topic of regional agreements/indigenous people with good reference to the Mt Todd gold mine situation. The issues covered in this paper include: a) overview of regional agreements, providing a good discussion here with many references to other authors in this endnote database (authors referenced here include: Altman 1994a & 1994b; O'Faircheallaigh 1995a & 1995b; Pritchard & Gibson 1996; Crough 1992 & 1995). b) good discussion about the Jawoyn people in relation to the Mt Todd gold mine (good link here to McManus 2000). This section discusses the identity and self-determination of the Jawoyn people (with many other referenced authors, that are not listed in endnote libraries). c) Mt Todd Regional Agreement - this section includes Table 1. that depicts Jawoyn Title to traditional lands, listing the title agreements. d) Australian governments and barriers to self-determination e) Land Rights regimes in the Katherine region f) systems of governance and autonomy - discussion here in relation to the ATSIC Act g) Conclusion - this involves discussion of the wider implications of regional agreements, with Canadian references used. The bibliography is quite extensive also.
