Mine Closure Services

WE HAVE A TEAM OF RECOGNISED AND TRUSTED EXPERTS WITH REAL EXPERIENCE IN PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTING MINE CLOSURE WITH OUR CLIENTS. WE UNDERSTAND REGULATOR EXPECTATIONS AND DELIVER WHAT IS REQUIRED.

Our mine closure team focus on integration of the consultant and client team during the course of the project.  Being part of an integrated team gives our consultants the sense of ownership and ability to make a difference, while at the same time providing our clients with confidence that their best interest is at heart and is the focus.  It provides the assurance that project risks and outcomes are shared between the proponent and the consultant.

This strategic approach, underpinned by clear and realistic goals, objectives and completion criteria, ensures our clients achieve Lease/Licence relinquishment across Australia.  We have a proven track record in providing advice that combines regulatory or other closure obligations with our technical knowledge of rehabilitation and an understanding of the closure needs unique to each mine site.
