Thiess Rehabilitation’s Rhianna Goodwin shares insights from Central Queensland Mining Rehabilitation Group (CQMRG)’s Workshop and Meandu Mine Tour

10 May 2023

Thiess Rehabilitation’s Rhianna Goodwin attended the first CQMRG event of the year, which included a workshop in Kingaroy and Meandu Mine site tour.

Hosted by Stanwell Corporation and BUMA Australia, the workshop focused on the rehabilitation history, unique conditions and challenges faced by Meandu Mine.

It also included a regulator update by the Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) and panel discussion between DES and CQMRG members on the Progressive Rehabilitation and Closure Plan (PRCP) experience to date.

Rhianna said, “The site tour reinforced the great focus, effort, and success Stanwell and BUMA have achieved with mine rehabilitation at Meandu Mine. It was impressive to see such well-established rehabilitation and learn about the different post mining land uses that are being created.”

Thank you to CQMRG, Stanwell and BUMA for a very relevant and well executed workshop.
