This presentation will overview the technical contents of an International Standard being developed on the topic of Mine Closure and Reclamation Management Planning. The Mine Closure and Reclamation Management Planning project is intended to provide a crucial overarching document for Mine Closure and Reclamation Management Planning along with the requirements or recommendations for Mine Closure and Reclamation Management Planning. The Work Item follows a Life Cycle approach to Mine Reclamation Management Planning with the recognition that planning for mine reclamation must take place throughout the lifecycle of the mine and not just at closure. This covers the main decision points and procedures that need to be considered in planning for mine closure and reclamation, with the standard organized into two parts – the first part provides key requirements, while the second provides general guidance. The standard is organized around the following topic areas: Approaches to reclamation; Reclamation technologies; Reclamation construction; Post-reclamation activities; Financial provisions, and; Documentation and reporting. The objective is that the ensuing standard will help ensure consistency and completeness in terms of the mine closure and reclamation management planning process.
