We take a scientific approach to environmental management.
To eliminate, minimise or effectively manage potential impacts, we use or develop industry-leading practices.
Rehabilitation of mined land is part of our daily mining activities, to reduce our active mining footprint.
Minimising our footprint
At every site, we aim to effectively manage and rehabilitate the land we mine to minimise our active mining footprint. This helps to ensure the land is returned to self-sustaining native ecosystems, agricultural use or other suitable purposes.
We put significant work into rehabilitation and closure planning. The final land use design is done in consultation with our communities.
In some cases, we have been able to return land we’ve mined to a state better than we originally found it.
