Mine rehabilitation focus of conference

More than 200 mining ­industry stakeholders will attend the fourth annual Mine Rehabilitation Conference at Singleton tomorrow.

SPEAKER: Tim Roberts.

The University of Newcastle’s Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment will host the event together with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to focus on the restoration of biodiversity to mining-affected areas.

Speakers include guests from various government agencies as well as university researchers and mining industry stakeholders.

TFI director Professor Tim Roberts said the annual conference was among the largest of its kind in Australia.

“It is an ideal opportunity for the various sectors to come together and share their unique approaches to re-establishing areas impacted by mining ­activity,” he said.

“The rehabilitation of our ecological systems is vital and by holding these policy ­discussions, without a political agenda, we’re helping to ensure the best environmentaloutcomes are realised.”

Professor Roberts said the event was open to interested members of the public with online registration available.

The event will be held at Singleton Diggers from 8am to 5.10pm.
