Planning for successful rehabilitation

© Copyright 2022 Aspermont Media

Mine closure has become a core part of a much wider industry conversation around social responsibility, environmental stewardship and corporate governance. According to recent Mining Journal research, more than half of the 400 mining industry professionals regarded mine closure as ‘crucial’ for development planning, while a further 11% said it was a ‘rapidly growing concern’. Only 7% said mine closure planning was only a ‘secondary concern’.

Mining Journal Intelligence has prepared a white paper in consultation with industry experts to address:

  • The current industry practice for mine-closure planning and execution
  • Trending regulatory changes that govern fiscal provisions and liabilities around mine closure
  • Social transitioning and sustainability
  • What an integrated mine-closure plan and contemporary rehabilitation should look like
  • The steps the industry needs to take to improve best practice and ensure the optimal outcome for all stakeholders.
