Planning for how we are going to close and rehabilitate our mines is part of our ongoing mine planning.
These plans incorporate the ways we can mitigate the operational impacts of our mines and include post-closure environmental, economic and social impacts. The level of closure planning will vary depending on how close it is to the end of the mine life operation. But it always incorporates a range of technical information and stakeholder expectations.
We plan for closure at each of our operations and progressively rehabilitate where mining activities have been finalised.
