When a site like a mine, dump or dam is no longer fit for its intended use, the land area can be rehabilitated to resemble its state before the site was built. This way, land can be reused for different purposes. Land rehabilitation is generally implemented after other events to restore a natural environment without using it again.
In most instances, the company using the site must organise site rehabilitation. Mining companies must acquire a rehabilitation security bond before activities begin and are regulated by state and federal governments to follow through on this agreement. Geologists, engineers, toxicologists, public health scientists and technical support personnel can all be employed to work on rehabilitating the land. Often, soil and planting companies will work on-site rehabilitation by replanting native vegetation on topsoil or soil cover to prevent erosion.
Waste Dumps - Contour and flatten the land to prevent erosion.Landfills - Cover the landfill with topsoil and plant native vegetation to prevent erosion.Dumps - Plant native vegetation and fence off the site so livestock don’t graze on the vegetation. When livestock reduces the amount of vegetation, the plant root system is less effective in consolidating the soil (and preventing erosion).Open Pit Mines - Surround with a fence and leave it to fill with rainwater/ groundwater.Tailings Dams - Leave to evaporate then cover with rock, clay and soil.
