Introducing Isabel Hardy, Senior Mine Rehabilitation Advisor

17 May 2024

Thiess Rehabilitation is excited to introduce Isabel Hardy, Senior Mine Rehabilitation Advisor, based in our Brisbane office.

Having worked with Thiess’ Corporate Technical Services team for just over a year, Isabel is helping deliver Thiess Rehabilitation’s services, from tenders and project support to strategy and delivery.

Her day-to-day work includes:

  • Researching mining project rehabilitation commitments, challenges and emerging trends to ensure Thiess Rehabilitation remains responsive to the demands in the industry
  • Providing project and operations support, including site visits
  • Supporting tender submissions

Isabel brings a unique perspective to Thiess Rehabilitation, where she combines her experience in open-cut and underground mines, including supporting rehabilitation and mine closure planning and execution on site, with her corporate governance skills. She is focused on adapting her technical skills to business development and strategy.

Isabel says she is learning about different legislative frameworks around mine rehabilitation in Australia, and globally, and mine rehabilitation in different commodities, and enjoying getting to know her broader network of colleagues, stakeholders and clients.

With public perception and awareness and evolving legislative landscapes increasing pressure on mining companies to perform more land rehabilitation, with better outcomes, the first time around, Isabel says this is driving a need for more knowledge sharing, innovation and improvements in the mine rehabilitation space.

“I’m really excited to be in a position where I can stay on top of changes in the industry and have an impact in implementing our own innovations.”

Welcome, Isabel.


When you think Thiess Rehabilitation, you think…

“I think of a competent technical team, backed by a great team on site, to get things done. It makes sense to me that Thiess, one of the best in the business in mining, has expanded its service offering to be the best in the business of mine rehabilitation.”

When you’re not at work, we’ll find you… hiking in Lamington National Park and the Granite Belt in south-east Queensland, and cooking (and eating!) delicious food with friends and family.
