Mine waste cover systems

Effective management of mine waste requires an understanding of the interaction between local climate, the geochemical properties of waste material and the surrounding environment. Cover systems are an important part of controlling this interaction and supporting the rehabilitation of mine waste held in tailings storage facilities, waste rock dumps or heap leach piles. The Office of the Queensland Mine Rehabilitation Commissioner is undertaking work to review and assess practices for the management of mine waste in Queensland.

Publications will be made available here once completed.
