Yingawunarri (Old Top Springs) Mudbura Land Claim

 This report presents the findings and recommendations of the Aboriginal Land Commissioner following an inquiry into the Yingawunarri (Old Top Springs) Mudbura Land Claim (Application No. 17), a traditional land claim application submitted by the Northern Land Council under section 50(1)(a) of the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 on 4 May 1978.

The report was provided to the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and the Minister for Home Affairs on 19 October 1979.

The land subject to claim was an area of unalienated Crown land lying within Montejinni pastoral lease in the Victoria River district.

The report notes that the application was originally described as the 'Montejinnie Land Claim'.  This was later amended to its present title which more accurately reflects the location of the land claimed and the claimant group involved.
