Abstract

This case study considers the challenges of implementing effective regulatory processes for rehabilitation of open cut coal mines in one of the world’s largest brown coal reserves, the Latrobe Valley, Victoria. It demonstrates the leading role of the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 (MRSD Act) in mine rehabilitation regulation, including measures to integrate the MRSD Act with the operation of land use, water use and climate change legislation.
