Developing Coal Mining in Harmony With the Natural Environment

BMA, which is owned 50% by MC through wholly owned resource subsidiary Mitsubishi Development Pty Ltd, undertakes extensive rehabilitation to restore mining sites to their natural state.

Prior to open-cut mining, the topsoil and rest of the overburden are first removed and stored in a separate location. The environmental rehabilitation process involves filling in the site, replacing the topsoil and then replanting native trees and vegetation. After restoration, the site is monitored regularly to check that trees, plants and shrubs have started to grow and that local wildlife has returned.

The water used in coal-mining processes is managed to strict standards to preserve local water quality, and is recycled for use in washing coal or watering vegetation. Rainwater and groundwater are stored at the mine and used for preventing a wide spread of particulates or watering vegetation. In these and other ways, BMA is working in harmony with the local natural environment.
