All tenements that have an approved Mining Proposal on them must also have an approved Mine Closure Plan (MCP). All MCPs must be prepared in accordance with the “Guidelines for Preparing Mine Closure Plans”. Approved MCPs must be reviewed after three years or at a time specified by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS), the updated MCP including any changes must then be submitted again to DMIRS for approval. The due date of the revised MCP is specified as a tenement condition.
MCPs can be lodged electronically with a mining proposal, in hard copy at DMIRS offices or online via DMIRS submissions. Read our guide on how to submit via DMIRS Submissions.
