(a) a particular future act is the creation or variation of a right to mine in both an alternative provision area (as defined in subsection 43A(2)) and an area (the other area ) that is not an alternative provision area; and
(b) because of section 43A, provisions of a State or Territory law would, apart from this section, have effect in relation to the act;
then, for the purposes of this Subdivision:
(c) the act is taken to consist of 2 separate acts, as follows:
(i) one act consisting of the creation or variation of that right to mine, but only in the alternative provision area; and
(ii) the other act consisting of the creation or variation of that right to mine, but only in the other area; and
(d) the act mentioned in subparagraph (c)(ii) is taken to be done only when the right concerned is first exercised in the other area.
Note: In effect, this section splits the act in 2 (for "right to negotiate" purposes only). Only the "act" mentioned in subparagraph (c)(i)--not the "act" mentioned in subparagraph (c)(ii)--attracts the alternative provisions under section 43A.
