What’s this about? 

The NSW Government is committed to ensuring major mining projects use best practice rehabilitation so that previously mined land can sustain other uses.

There are five proposed reforms set out in the discussion paper across the assessment, operational and closure stages of the mine life cycle.

A key aim of the proposed improvements is to ensure mine rehabilitation is consistent with leading practice and delivers appropriate social, economic and environmental outcomes for communities.
