Mine Closure

One of the greatest challenges facing the mining industry is the issue of the economic and socially acceptable closure of mine sites. Media attention shown to the legacy of abandoned mine sites has focused public interest on mine closure issues. Approval for future mining projects will more likely be obtained if industry demonstrates it is able to close existing sites in a responsible and environmentally and socially acceptable manner.
