Progressive Rehabilitation & Closure Plan
Queensland has legislated a new process for mine planning and closure. Epic’s team of skilled and diverse experts have delivered approvals for some of Queensland’s first Progressive Rehabilitation and Closure Plans (PRCP) and continue to prepare practical and pragmatic solutions for resource projects. Our intent is to develop a PRCP that will identify opportunities for improving the environmental outcomes during and at the end of the mine life – reducing your liability and improving your ESG outcomes. Based on our experience, the integration of mine production and closure planning to strategically and progressively work towards a successful and sustainable final landform or Post Mining Land Use (PMLU) will improve operational efficiency by minimising rework and the risk of unforeseen and undesirable environmental outcomes that could incur significant financial penalties.
