Resources & Native Title

WE UNDERSTAND THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ISSUES THAT AFFECT BOTH THE MINING AND RESOURCES SECTOR AND NATIVE TITLE PARTIES.

Ethical Resource & Native Title Services

Our broad knowledge base and legal expertise in these areas allows us to act for clients in both of these sectors with pragmatism, diligence and compassion, and because of our success, we’ve been named one of the top eight mining law legal practices in Australia.

MINING & RESOURCES

Creevey Russell Lawyers represents landholders across Queensland in negotiations with mining and petroleum companies. We have advised, represented and supported our clients faced with initial exploration activities through to full project development. We have also been involved with several infrastructure projects involving powerline, pipeline and railway easements. We can assist landholders with:

  • Notice of entry rights and responsibilities

  • Negotiating and drafting Conduct and Compensation Agreements

  • Railway, road, pipeline, electricity easements

  • Make good agreements

  • Negotiation and litigation in relation to breaches of agreements

NATIVE TITLE LAW

At Creevey Russell Lawyers, we’re concerned with delivering innovative solutions that meet the long-term needs of indigenous communities.

In our work, we draw on the principles of mutual respect, diplomacy, ethical practice, and genuine compassion and concern for the wellbeing of people. This allows us to facilitate negotiations between indigenous claimants and proponents, to assist indigenous claimants in establishing and maintaining commercial activities and ventures, and to provide sound advice on joint venture agreements with corporations and other indigenous groups.


We also assist with property issues and structuring and conduct authorisation meetings, as well as negotiating indigenous land use agreements and cultural heritage agreements for both applicant groups and mining and resource companies.
