Post Mining Land Use - Practice Mapping Options: Ensham Coal Mine Case Study: Case Study Project 1.3

Lauren Downes, Alex Gardner

Research output: Book/ReportOther outputpeer-review

Abstract

This case study considers three issues with Queensland’s mining rehabilitation regulatory framework:
1. rehabilitation of voids of pre-existing open cut mines at the time of recent legislation reforms;
2. insufficient progressive rehabilitation of pre-existing open cut mines;
3. lack of transparency in the operation of the regulatory framework.
We explore these issues using the Ensham thermal coal mine (referred to as the Ensham Mine, Mine or Ensham in this writing) in central Queensland as the case study.
