    Don’t miss out on your chance to join industry leaders, government experts and other specialists to discuss pressing issues facing mining, the big trends and how to prepare for future challenges.

    Key issues to be explored include: Indigenous and regional community engagement; water stewardship; mine closure and relinquishment; regulatory approvals; community expectations; and the influence of technology.

    The event has an excellent line up speakers including Dr Vanessa Guthrie (Chair, MCA), Ms Elizabeth Henderson (Executive Director, Loquemur) and Ms Deanna Kemp (Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining).

    The workshop provides access to industry leaders and experts in an interactive format built around robust discussion.  It is a networking opportunity – connecting professionals, managers, community and environmental practitioners, students and industry partners.

    Participants will walk away with an understanding of leading practice approaches and learnings they can apply in their own workplace. For the full program, and to register, go to

    The Minerals Council of Australia today released a new publication titled Mine Rehabilitation in the Australian minerals Industry showcasing the commitment by the industry to mine site rehabilitation so that previously mined land again becomes available for future economic activity, conservation or community use.

    The publication demonstrates that the industry does not consider mine rehabilitation as something that begins towards the end of the project, but rather a process that begins right from the beginning of the mine project planning.

    The MCA's mine rehabilitation website can be found at: and you can download the new publication here:

    On the 3rd and 8th December workshops were held at the Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI) to update SMIs peers and those CQMRG members who could attend, on the progress and purpose of the MRC-wiki. Those participating were encouraged to think of what knowledge they could share and in what form it could be presented. Through both one-on-one and small group discussions, a number of additional wiki pages were written or commenced - even in some cases just as identified headings or themes but still a start. We will be following up with authors for completed pages.

    The aim is to populate the wiki with some starting pages as examples, to help get the ball rolling.

    For more information refer to the MRC-Wiki Project page.
