Information Sources


This series consists of agreements made between the State Government of Queensland and private companies, predominately metal and mining companies such as Metals Exploration and Freeport Queensland Nickel Incorporated. Each agreement, or variant of, includes details and expectations of the agreement. It includes but is not limited to the following: those the agreement is between; details of proper care of the environment; details of special mining lease; rent; reports to be provided, export details; Acts to which the agreement are relevant and must be adhered to; in some cases pull out maps of the area and road dedication.
The agreements in this series come in two forms. The first is considered to be an original document and includes the wax seal of the Premiers Office on the cover and is signed by the then Premier, the Honourable Johannes Bjelke-Petersen and the relevant parties for the companies the agreement are with. The second type are believed to be copies of the agreement and don't feature the wax seal or signature.

A decision was made by Cabinet (no 48104) to establish a central repository of all intergovernmental agreements within the Premier's Department on 17 February1986. Departments were requested to provide copies of all agreements they were responsible for executing between the Governor-General/Governor; Prime Minister/Premier; Commonwealth Minister/Premier; Commonwealth Minister/State Minister; Commonwealth Permanent Head/State Permanent Head and agreements in the form of Acts of Parliament. These included agreements entered into since or after 1 January 1986, and prior to that if conveniently available. Correspondence between departments and the Premier's Office, including copies of agreements are filed in 'Registers of Intergovernmental Agreements' contained within this series (F1227A - G). These copies may differ from the copies or originals filed in individual agreement files.
