THE largest native title claim in South Australia, covering a uranium mine and the iconic Wilpena Pound rock basin, will be signed off today by the Federal Court in Adelaide, in a move welcomed by state and federal governments.

The court is expected to formally recognise claims made by the Adnyamathanha Aboriginal people to more than 41,000sqkm of land in the Flinders and Gammon Ranges and surrounding areas, about 350km north of Adelaide.

The claim by the Adnyamathanha people was lodged in 1994 after the landmark Mabo judgment in the High Court, recognising the existence of native title.
