Cleaning up after the miners walk away: are you OK with footing the bill?

How do we make sure mining companies pay to properly rehabilitate mine sites and avoid environmental harm, in accordance with their environmental obligations; and don’t leave you as a taxpayer to foot the bill?

Join EDO Qld and a range of speakers Thursday 18 August in Brisbane, as we explore how the environmental legacies of mines are currently regulated, the impacts this is having on Queensland, and the new Chain of Responsibility Act.

Speakers

  • Tim Buckley, Director of Energy Finance Studies (Australasia), Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis;
  • Rick Humphries, Mine Rehabilitation Reform Campaign Coordinator, Lock the Gate;
  • Dr Peter Erskine, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation, Sustainable Minerals Institute, UQ.

This is a free event, but places are strictly limited.

August 18, 2016 at 6pm - 8pm
