subsequent rights and privileges granted to those holders or any other person following the exercise of the rights referred to in paragraph (b) (including those provided for by section 32 of the Crown Minerals Act 1991); and


the obligations on those holders or any other person imposed by or under the Crown Minerals Act 1991; and


the exercise by the Crown of its functions and powers under the Crown Minerals Act 1991 in relation to any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) to (d).


A customary marine title group is entitled to receive the following royalties:


from the Crown, any royalties due to the Crown under the Crown Minerals Act 1991 in respect of minerals (other than petroleum, gold, silver, and uranium existing in their natural condition) that are subject to any privilege referred to in subsection (1)(a) to (d) that applies to its customary marine title area; and


from the regional council, any royalties for sand and shingle taken from the customary marine title area imposed by regulations made under the Resource Management Act 1991.
