Grazing as a post-mining land use

Grazing is one of the most common post-mining land uses (PMLUs) for mine sites in Queensland. There is a large array of land suitability, land capability, agricultural land classification and operational tools used in the agricultural sector broadly, as well as specifically in pastoral practices that can have application to mine rehabilitation. The Office of the Queensland Mine Rehabilitation Commissioner is undertaking work to review rehabilitation planning practices for grazing. This work seeks to provide advice to describing the suitability of rehabilitated land for grazing to establish sustainable pastures, the attributes necessary to achieve a grazing PMLU and describe approaches to manage grazing on rehabilitated mining areas.

Publications will be made available here once completed.
