This piece provides an overview of two cases, Northwest Sand & Gravel Pty Ltd Ngarluma Aboriginal corporation RNTBC [2020] NNTTA 68 and Atlas Iron Pty Ltd v Nyamal Aboriginal Corporation [2020] NNTTA 75.

Both cases highlight the importance of parties needing to negotiate in good faith; every right to negotiate process requires each party to negotiate in good faith with the view of reaching an agreement about the relevant grant, irrespective of there being a prior agreement about future grants. The article looks at each both cases and provides key insights to bear in mind for similar cases.
