Consultation on draft Mining Rehabilitation Plan Guideline

We are seeking your input on the development of a new Rehabilitation Plan Guideline for mining. This guideline is being developed to give effect to the new rehabilitation plan requirements set out in Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) (Mineral Industries) Regulations 2019.

The new requirements will apply to all new mining and prospecting work plans submitted after 1 July 2020.  All applications to vary a work or rehabilitation plan (for a mining or prospecting licence) submitted after this date will be required to update their rehabilitation plan to align with the new requirements.

Consultation Documents

The consultation questions have been prepared to focus attention on certain components of the Guideline we would like to hear targeted feedback on.  Please also provide comments on other aspect of the Guideline you consider relevant.

If you would like to provide written comments, please do so by COB Friday 15 November.

For any questions, or to provide a consultation response, please contact Eugene Henry on 8392 6790 or
