Rehabilitating land following mining is a major and growing issue for Western Australia (WA), with around 2.5 Mha of land currently under an active mining lease. About 85% of mining project proposals assessed by the WA Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) have had rehabilitation and/or closure conditions recommended and subsequently applied by the Minister for Environment through a ministerial statement. This is in addition to the requirements for rehabilitation and/or closure specified under the Mining Act 1978.
