About the report
A workshop was called in April 2000 by the Supervising Scientist to examine technical issues associated with the rehabilitation of Nabarlek and was attended by stakeholders representing Federal and Territory Governments and Traditional Owners. Invited experts in revegetation and 'state of the environment reporting' addressed the workshop and chaired sessions. The workshop was conducted as an open forum for discussion and its outcomes have been presented to the Nabarlek Minesite Technical Committee.
The key questions considered by the workshop were as follows:
- Has rehabilitation at Nabarlek reached a stage where the mining company can be discharged of its responsibility?
- If not, has adequate monitoring data been collected that will allow rehabilitation success to be assessed?
- What are the lessons learnt that can be applied now, or for further research which will help in achieving rehabilitation success?
