Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue preparing for pasture restoration tour

The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue (UHMD) is preparing to host a Pasture Restoration Field Day later this year that will involve tours of mine rehabilitation and information sharing focusing on pasture establishment.

The tour will take place in October across a number of mine sites in the Upper Hunter that have been rehabilitated to pasture, and highlight the industry’s commitment to providing a positive legacy for Upper Hunter communities post-mining.

The concept of a combined briefing/discussion and Field Day came from a community member on the UHMD’s Joint Environment Working Group early last year, and from a recently published project from the Australian Coal Association Research Program examining past and present mine rehabilitation to grazing land.

The Field Day will be an opportunity for agronomists, mining industry personnel and other key stakeholders from government, local councils, and community groups to come together to promote successes in the mining industry, and to share and discuss rehabilitated mine pasture research that can support continuous improvement and potentially better results.
