This report focussed on specific needs of highly salt tolerant plants to revegetate gold mining operations. It specifically addresses five aspects of highly salt tolerant individuals within species known to be halophytic:

  1. Selection of field growing material
  2. Clonal propagation of selected individuals;
  3. Development of salt tolerant lines;
  4. Testing salt tolerance of clonal individuals; and
  5. Field testing in areas in need of revegetation and with high soil salinities.

Keywords: minesite revegetation, salt tolerant plants, salt degraded land
