Description

In theory, mine closure is simple; in practice, it is difficult. In this course, we will start with the simple and then proceed to the more difficult, which we will explain in terms that will enable you to deal with the many issues that arise as you plan and implement mine closure.

The simple part of mine closure may be set down as three objectives:

  • remove equipment and structures;

  • stabilize waste piles; and

  • control spread of pollutants from the closed site.

As we shall see as we progress through this course, these three simple objectives quickly give rise to many questions and knotty issues, including:

  • Who pays?

  • Who says enough is enough? And,

  • What is to become of the site in the long term?

Many more related and difficult issues arise. Reading only this course will not enable you to solve all the problems. Each mine site is unique and demands a unique closure plan and approach. You will undoubtedly have to formulate the specifics of the closure plan for your mine by way of many studies, meetings, reports, and deep deliberations. This course will attempt to set down the current state of ideas, practice, and possibilities, so that you are empowered to move forward to success at the mine where you are part of a team charged with mine closure.

Course is interesting at some point, but it could use an update. The way mine implement closure have evolved a lot in the last 10 years, both technically and socially. Also, majority of links gave in the course are expired.
