Designed for Closure
The project has been designed for closure, so that the land can be returned to a stable and productive state following the end of operations. This is the culmination of a process that begins before we even break ground on the mine itself: reclamation.
All pyritic tailings backhauled to the pit at closure
Removal of mill and other facilities not used after closure
Hauling of PAG waste rock into the open pit for under water storage
Recontouring and placement of overburden for revegetation
Plan and infrastructure for long term water management and treatment
Financial assurance for closure and long term site management is required before construction
