The new era of mine closure and rehabilitation requires a holistic, integrated and adaptive approach, with mine closure solutions focused on progressive strategies that are implemented from feasibility right through to relinquishment. The process of mine closure should be strategically planned from the beginning of the life of mine.

In the rapidly developing environment that the mining industry is now operating in, operations need to be aware of their strategy for closure and rehabilitation, to be adaptable when plans change. Not only does this mitigate environmental and social risks, but it also keeps your stakeholders informed of operational stages and plans.

RPMGlobal seamlessly brings together its ESG, mining advisory and software services to support mining clients in developing their ongoing closure plans, estimates and rehabilitation assessments. Mine Closure is no longer just an afterthought, its a strategised process to care for the surrounding physical environment and the lives of individuals, communities ad local governments,
