This Report maps three current Australian regulatory frameworks (that is, the law and policy) for mine closure. It sets out the topography of the regulatory frameworks for mine closure in three Australian State jurisdictions (Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia) and notes the Commonwealth interaction with
the State frameworks. The Report presents an informative regulatory map in practical steps and gives comparative analyses to identify the varied regulatory approaches and to identify the potential regulatory gaps and barriers to effective, efficient and equitable mine closure. The comparative analyses also help to pose key questions for future research that can identify leading regulatory practice and the potential for reforms to achieve regulatory excellence in mine closure. The Report contains critical analysis of some law and policy but it does not attempt to resolve conundrums or recommend reforms.
