FAQ:

What is the government's involvement in mine rehabilitation?

The Australian Government is placing an increased focus and commitment to ensuring major mining projects use best practice rehabilitation so that the land can be re-purposed once mining operations cease. The Government acknowledges that aspects of the current regulatory framework for mine rehabilitation do not meet best practice. Reforms are now underway at a state level.
