Find out how New Hope Group has rehabilitated the New Oakleigh mine

New Hope Group is an majority Australian owned and operated diversified energy company which has been proudly based in South East Queensland for more than 60 years. New Hope has business interests and operations spanning coal mining, exploration, port operation, oil, agriculture, innovative technologies and investment.


The New Oakleigh mine was a part of their West Moreton mining operations from 1992 to 2013. After mining ceased, New Hope began the process of rehabilitation – bringing the land back to what you see below.

This included rehabilitating land and transforming the old tailings dam at Oakleigh East, a legacy area that they inherited when they acquired the site.

New Hope also underwent rehabilitation at the neighbouring New Oakleigh West site, which operated as an open cut operation. In 2017, the rehabilitation of this area was completed which included 223Ha of mined land.

Once fenced, New Hope Group’s pastoral company, Acland Pastoral, will be grazing around 150 head of cattle on what was an open cut coal mine.
