Mine Closure & Rehabilitation

When you’re talking about mine closure and rehabilitation, developing stable landforms is and establishing the means for long term management of water are critical part of the process.

In order to achieve these goals effectively and manage associated costs, strategies to address acid mine drainage (AMD) issues, top soil management, seed harvesting and spreading, erosion control and natural management of water quality need to be developed. The key is developing an achievable end state vision that ensures the regulatory community and stakeholders are focused on achievable goals while also leveraging opportunities for value enhancement and rapid rehabilitation. Effective communication and advocacy, combined with robust science and practical knowledge, are vital to successful mine closure.
