The Missing Science of Coal Mining Rehabilitation
IECA are proud to bring you the 2011 Mining Rehabilitation Conference to be held in the Hunter Valley from the 20th - 23rd June. The theme for the conference is ‘The missing science of coal mining rehabilitation’ and the conference program has been designed to fill a much needed niche within the mining industry that is not being addressed by recent industry conferences.
Delivering effective coal mining rehabilitation is a critical commitment in the social contract between the mining industry and the community. With a significant anti coal mining groundswell evolving at a grass roots level on the back of the debate regarding climate change and dust health impacts – failing to deliver on the industries rehabilitation commitment is something that the industry can ill afford at this time.
Successful rehabilitation is dependent on having the political will to go out and do the job and a technical understanding of what has to be done. This conference aims to inspire you to have the political will to get out there and undertake rehabilitation and equip you with the technical skills and scientific knowledge necessary to undertake rehabilitation successfully.
We will do this by:
- Celebrating and communicating industry best practice
- Providing site specific case studies conveying real world learnings
- Bringing you industry specialists that are experts in their field
- Critically evaluating and learning from industry failures
