Post mining land use

benefits comparison of post mining land use

Post mining land use presents a significant opportunity for mining-reliant communities to support economic diversification and future productivity. Post mining land use is an ongoing process that occurs across all stages of the project lifecycle, following recent reforms to the mine rehabilitation framework.

The Department has prepared a short, practical guide to support industry in relation to post mining land use planning, mine closure, and transitioning to future land uses. This guide offers general guidance, and mining lease holders are encouraged to seek specialist advice on a site-specific basis.
