Public consultation open

You are invited to provide feedback on the proposed amendments to the Mining Regulation 2016 which will give effect to operational rehabilitation reforms.

The mining lease conditions relating to rehabilitation have been reviewed to improve clarity and enforceability of rehabilitation outcomes. This amendment regulation will prescribe mining lease conditions relating to rehabilitation through amending the Regulation under the Mining Act 1992. The new mining lease conditions will support best practice mine site rehabilitation and ensure NSW has a sustainable minerals industry.

The new conditions will require lease holders to develop a rehabilitation management plan to identify and achieve rehabilitation outcomes, undertake rehabilitation risk assessments, develop a forward program to demonstrate the approach to progressive rehabilitation and report annually on performance.

Have your say
Two online public consultation forums are scheduled on 15 and 20 October 2020 to provide information and answer questions about the proposed changes. Interested? Register to join the forums via our consultation page.

Submissions close 6 November 2020.
