Reimagine. Repurpose. Relinquish. Workshop
In planning for closure, a mining company puts forth a vision of what the coming years will hold for its site. Otherwise known as the post-mining land use, this vision captures what condition and what use(s) the company visualises for the land. The company then works steadily towards achieving that vision. However, even when a company has met all of its rehabilitation and closure obligations, regulators and/or other stakeholders may still be reluctant to allow a mine to be relinquished, particularly where this requires custodial transfer of risk. Consequently, it encounters barriers, frustrations and costly delays.
This workshop is aimed at those already involved in planning and managing for site closure and relinquishment, as well as those only just embarking on that journey. It will suit multidisciplinary practitioners as well as those specialising in environmental, social, engineering or other fields. Workshop participants will not be required to provide any materials, but will need to complete a brief on-line survey prior to the workshop.
