The Pila Nguru Aboriginal Corporation, located in Kalgoorlie, administers land on behalf of the Spinifex people. Their ownership over this land was recognised in the Spinifex People determination of 2000.

The Spinifex People determination recognised two sets of native title rights in different parts of the claim area. In Part A the native title rights gave exclusive possession, occupation and use, while Part B was held through non-exclusive rights and interests. Part A comprises 85 percent of the claim area, while the remainder is jointly held with the Western Australian Department of Conservation and Land Management.
