Course description
Why a Mine Closure and Rehabilitation programme?
The South African Mining industry has a legacy of challenges pertaining to mine closure and its related residual impacts. Critical aspects relevant to mine closure including inadequate financial provision, post-closure pollution risks, the socio-economic impact, lack of proper knowledge and planning, lack of accountability and the lack of an integrated approach in dealing with mine closure forces the Mining Industry to re-look their approach to this complex issue. Mine closure and rehabilitation in all its facets need to be addressed in a structured integrated approach so as to ensure a successful mine closure implementation process.

The programme in Mine Closure and Rehabilitation will add value in dealing with this very important aspect in the mining industry. This course will provide an overview of the requirements for integrated mine closure planning, looking at legal requirements, general opportunities and threats and practical examples. The course aims to provide up to date information on legislative requirements and government expectation with regards to mine closure. A structured approach to enable applicants to timeously plan for closure of mining operations preventing a misunderstanding of the processes to be followed when applying for closure. Integrated into the theme of closure planning is the ever-important land and soil management component which supports effective closure practices.
