The series of international mine closure conferences was initiated in 2006 by the Australian Centre for Geomechanics.

A key feature of the conference series is the diversity of disciplines and expertise that come together to focus on the pressing issues facing the mine closure community internationally. The range of topics covered by papers at this year’s conference is once again very wide, and this year sees an emphasis on case studies. Reflecting the international nature of delegates to this conference, case studies are presented from a range of countries including Germany, China, Canada, Indonesia, the United States, Chile and Australia. Aside from case studies, specialist sessions include those dealing with long term stability, cover systems, community engagement, ecosystem reconstruction and post-closure monitoring, amongst others.

In a recent review of issues facing the mining industry, the social licence to operate was once again flagged as a top ten issue. The environmental, social and long term stability considerations of mine closure activities places this conference at the centre of this ‘top ten’ issue of concern to the mining industry.

These proceedings are an electronic (USB) only publication featuring 99 papers.
