A new publication featuring examples of outstanding environmental management by Western Australia’s resources sector is now available online.

The Rehabilitation Showcase highlights rehabilitation outcomes, managed by mining and petroleum companies operating in WA, following the closure of mine sites and exploration activities.

The publication summarises the innovative techniques, research and monitoring the individuals and companies use to improve the rehabilitation of state forest areas, ecosystems and the restoration of land formations.
