ECONOMIC transformation 

"Mine closure" indicates an end of the extractive phase of a mine life. It's when the economic transformation and relinquishment phase takes over. Planning for this should have occurred decades earlier, as we know every mined resource is finite.

Planning for 'closure' and rehabilitation, or secondary commercialisation, early in the mining lifecycle will yield more cost-effective results than treating it late when economics have deteriorated and the landform transformation is well advanced.

enviroMETS Qld is identifying project opportunities to work with an expanded group of interested parties to under feasibility work to repurpose and remediate abandoned mine land. We also pursue opportunities to work with mining operators, regional communities and new commercial entrepreneurs to identify high value, job rich post mining land use solutions that will sustain post mining economies.

Mary Kathleen Abandoned Mine Site

We work with the Department of Resources AMLP ‘Care & Maintenance’ program to explore innovative new purposes, and/or recommercalisation of site with new technologies to extract historical and new critical minerals. 

Historical, cultural, social, environmental, educational or economic value of abandoned mines are considered when developing management and/or remediation plans.

enviroMETS Qld feasibility process involves facilitating planning workshops with government agencies, local community engagement, technical collaborations, research on reuse and remediation, and improvements in land use, rehabilitation design of vegetation and landform.
