Many of Queensland’s operating mines have reached or are approaching the end of their productive life in the coming decades. As the 1200 or so abandoned mine sites attest, successful mine closure or economic post mining outcomes are historically rare. There are many more mines that will close operations in the next decade.

enviroMETS (Qld) Limited has been established to find innovative ESG solutions and sustainable ways to make mining impacted land valuable to its future custodians. This Mission recognises the diverse range of challenges that can be overcome by adopting a collaborative approach to technical innovation, fresh thinking about recommercialising mine land, repurposed post mining land use and new land rehabilitation methods.

The concept of "Net Best Value". Finding technologies, policies and practices that simultaneously advances the economic, societal, and environmental value in the communities in which it operates. In-so-doing develop market opportunities for our METS sector businesses to establish global leadership in Post Mining Land Use (PMLU) solutions.

Finding New Value Land Uses creates sustainable high value job rich opportunities for regional mining communities that need to economically diversify and transform their futures.

As an independent industry led, not-for-profit company, it facilitates research activities, shares knowledge, identifies solutions to problems, coordinates projects and provides an innovation eco-system for its participants. See About Us

Our Strategy has evolved since our Feb'23 Lighthouse Projects (LHP) Workshop where the overwhelming priorities are to Clarify the Regulatory Pathway [LHP1] and to establish a reliable multi factor Business Case Methodology [LHP2] that supports a range of collaborative stakeholder investments in Pilot Sites [LHP3]. See Projects

To achieve these goals, our Lighthouse Projects integrate as an enabling strategy to benefit Queensland’s industry, communities, government and METS sector. Our research efforts focus on these three integrated components:

LHP1: Ensure Regulatory Framework Supports Innovative PMLU Opportunities

LHP2: Establish Economic Viability of Pilot Project Sites.

LHP3: Operate Pilot Site to Demonstrate Technologies at Scale.

Develop Global Market Opportunities for METS PMLU Solutions.

We are seeking Industry Partners to support our goal to establish multiple commercially sound demonstration Pilot Site projects, where our research, innovative SME suppliers, government agencies and industry corporates can collaborate to recommercialise or repurpose and remediate.

Such sites will bring together more than one of our Expertise Streams to create a sustainable environmentally and socially sound  solution that benefits a wide stakeholder group. Engaging industry, government, researchers and local communities.

Please Contact Us with information on sites, projects or ideas that we can pursue.
