Summary

The program was carried out in the context of the design and management of large waste-rock dumps in arid ecosystems, in particular in the Great Sandy Desert, where Newcrest’s Telfer Gold mine operates.

Engineered post-mining landscapes are not only required to be restored to a near natural ecosystem function, but also to prevent contaminant and sediment off-site movement from rock-dumps and tailings storage facilities.
