2019 Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference
June 19 - June 21
The 9th Annual Best Practice Ecological Rehabilitation of Mined Lands Conference (2019) is organised by CRC CARE in conjunction with the School of Environmental and Life Sciences at the University of Newcastle. CRC CARE is an independent organisation that performs research, develops technologies and provides policy guidance for assessing, cleaning up and preventing contamination of soil, water and air.
This annual conference is a significant event on the Hunter Region calendar. It provides an important avenue to promote the use of best-practice approaches in the management of rehabilitation of mined lands.
Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference 2019 will be the leading forum for recent advances in mine rehabilitation and associated policy formulation and adoption. It will promote the science that underpins a risk-based approach to rehabilitation of mined land and, via interactive forums, identify the major constraints to effective remediation of such sites.
The conference presents an opportunity to put your organisation at the forefront of best practice in dealing with mined land rehabilitation sites. It offers a more economically sustainable approach that does not compromise human and environmental health. Mine Rehab 2019 provides a way forward for dealing with the legacy of our mining past.
