Brought to you by the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment (TFI), the University of Newcastle’s Environmental outreach arm, this conference will bring together leading professionals, stakeholders and companies within the mine rehabilitation sector.
This annual conference is a significant event on the Hunter Region calendar. It provides an important avenue to promote the use of
best-practice approaches in the management of rehabilitation of mined lands. The main conference sold out last year, making it one of the largest mining rehabilitation conferences in Australia.
Your attendance at this vital event, ensures the conversation will continue into the future, enabling the very best practice rehabilitation of mined lands.
It is the eighth year that the Tom Farrell Institute at the University of Newcastle has organised this gathering of experts on best
practice mined land rehabilitation. This conference is generously supported by the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer, as well as by the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage. This year we are proud to have as partners the Hunter Environmental
Institute, now in its 30th year of operation, and it has been a particular pleasure to work with Steve Crick, Samantha Bourke and Phil Reid on putting together the Cocktail Dinner and the mine tours. Our conference in 2018 has a truly international flavour with speakers from Spain, Chile and Indonesia bringing their national expertise to our attention, and a delegation from the mining industry
of Jiangxi Province in China will be present with us.
The program has been constructed to give strong exposure to the poster presenters, the exhibitors as well as to give plenty of time for delegates to mingle, mix, network and share views.
Mining in the Hunter Region is vast and will continue long past my lifetime with new leases opening up. It is imperative we plan for remediation of those lands before mining is begun. Good planning takes time, research and conversations such as those you will engage in throughout our Conference. Conversations such as “what is the best use of post-mining landscapes’ and “how does the current research impact on existing practices’ and “how can we improve our commitment to the community to remediate these lands” are some of those you will likely hear at our Conference.
