Rehabilitation


  • The company has an established record of land rehabilitation over several decades.
    Land previously subject to mining has been returned to various uses including agricultural and pastoral usages, native vegetation and in some cases land prepared for residential occupancy.
  • Iluka has managed a diverse range of land rehabilitation challenges associated with the restoration of wetlands, native vegetation and areas previously subject to multiple agricultural activities, including cropping and grazing.
    Iluka’s rehabilitation credentials have been an important component of the company gaining access to new mining areas, particularly where mining has not been a common part of land usage patterns.


Land rehabilitation is subject to competencies planning and management activities, both pre-mining, during mining activities and at the completion of mining. It is a feature of Iluka’s mining activities that land can be restored to topographical characteristics which would not indicate minerals extraction. Rehabilitation can also occur progressively associated with ongoing mining activity.
