Mine Closure and Post-Mining Services

Mine closure consists of reclamation to return the land and watercourses to an acceptable standard of productive use. Reclamation typically involves a number of activities such as removing any hazardous materials, reshaping the land, restoring topsoil, and planting native grasses, trees, or ground cover. Post-closure programs are used to assess quarries that may require long-term care and maintenance after closure such as ongoing treatment of mine discharge water, periodic monitoring and maintenance of tailings containment structures, and monitoring any ongoing remediation technologies used such as constructed wetlands.
