About the Manual
The Mining Heritage Places Assessment Manual is designed to assist in the recording, analysis, and heritage assessment of mining heritage places. It is aimed particularly at helping non-specialists in the heritage or mining fields to make basic decisions about heritage values, and aiding them to nominate mining heritage places to heritage registers. It is not about complex issues surrounding the conservation, continued mining or rehabilitation of mine sites, though a good understanding of a place's heritage significance is essential information in the resolution of these issues.
