Progressive Rehabilitation and Closure Plan guideline for mining in Queensland

Comments are being sought on the Draft Progressive Rehabilitation and Closure Plan (PRC plan) guideline and draft PRC plan application form. Feedback will be used to inform the finalisation of the guideline and application form.

The guideline has been developed to support the new rehabilitation reforms introduced through the Mineral Resources and Energy (Financial Provisioning) Act 2018. PRC plans will be required for all environmental authorities approved through a site-specific application for mining activities relating to a mining lease.

The guideline includes information on:

  • the PRC plan assessment process
  • information requirements
  • how to develop a proposed PRCP schedule
  • post-approval processes
  • transitional provisions.
