Mine development and operations are dependent upon good water supply,
safe management of wastes and rehabilitation of the final land forms.
The cost of these dictates the margins on ore and concentrate
production. Building efficiencies in resource supply and reducing the
costs of land reclamation and rehabilitation are keys to successful mine
EnviroAg Australia works closely with the coal and
mineral resource sectors. It is directly involved in water supply
assessment for gold mines in arid area; rehabilitation and ecological
monitoring of coal mine rehabilitation land forms.
Australia delivers specialist services in the rehabilitation of derelict
mines. It works closely with the NSW Department of Primary Industry.
Over the last 5 years it has worked on derelict gold, silver and lead
and asbestos mines in NSW. These mine sites bring many challenges; all
have been safely and sustainable managed. More information of derelict
mines can be obtained from the following link:
has the experience and capacity to design rehabilitation of derelict
mines in high rainfall areas (>2500mm) and arid zones.
Rock, gravel or sand are key commodities for regional development.
Local Councils, Road Authorities and large Agribusiness and Mines have
demands for rock, gravel and sand materials. Quality materials are
needed for infrastructure.
There are more than 2,500 hard rock
and sand and gravel quarries in Australia today. They range in size from
very large 'metropolitan' quarries near big cities making hundreds of
thousands of tonnes of quarry products a year, to small quarries that
supply rock products for use in remote areas when needed. Today
quarries needs to be managed as small mines. Mine and safety
regulations require compliance.
