Recent developments in Australia have seen indigenous peoples’ native title recognized as a legitimate prior title in many places where Australia’s mineral wealth is located. This has created a challenging new setting for decision-makers in resource industries. This article examines the situation in two of Australia’s major mineral export industries, bauxite and gold, and concludes that the changes underway will finally give Aboriginal Australians standing in the nation’s land and resource management systems.
