Event Details


Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference 2019


The Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) and the Global Centre for Environmental Remediation (GCER) at the University of Newcastle invite you to join experts and practitioners from around the world at the 9th Annual Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference 2019.

From 2011 to 2018, the conference was hosted by the University of Newcastle's Tom Farrell Institute under the title 'Best Practice Ecological Rehabilitation of Mined Lands' – or 'Mine Rehab'. Mine Rehab conferences are highly regarded by practitioners in the mining and allied sectors in Australia and overseas. 

Submit your abstract

Abstract submission is open now! Visit the the Mine Rehab 2019 conference website for more information. 


CRC CARE is a global leader in risk-based remediation. Headquartered at the University of Newcastle, it carries out international collaboration with globally recognised experts from other leading organisations around the world, including Kansas State University (USA), Nottingham University (UK), Wageningen University (Netherlands), and the Spanish National Research Council. CRC CARE has a track record of delivering world-class conferences and workshops, including the highly regarded biennial International Contaminated Site Remediation Conference ('CleanUp Conference'), which attracts around 700 delegates from more than 25 countries.

GCER is a leading proponent of risk-based approaches to the clean-up or management of contaminated sites. Based at the University of Newcastle, GCER safeguards people’s social, economic and physical wellbeing by developing innovative, cost-effective and sustainable technologies and solutions that reduce the impact of pollutants on the environment.

9th Annual Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference 2019

This year the conference will continue under the management of CRC CARE, which has frequently engaged with past Mine Rehab conferences.

This annual conference is a significant event on the Hunter Region calendar. It provides an important avenue to promote the use of best-practice approaches in the management of rehabilitation of mined lands. The conference brings together mine rehabilitation stakeholders to share current best practices, to discuss what is being done well, what can improve, and what needs to happen in the future.

This is your opportunity to engage and be engaged.

*This conference can be used towards continuing professional development points (please check with your certification scheme).

Mine Rehab 2019 includes:

  • Presentations by some of the world’s foremost experts in rehabilitation of mined land
  • Poster presentations from leading researchers
  • Expert thematic workshops.

Why attend?

Mined Land Rehabilitation Conference 2019 will be the leading forum for recent advances in mine rehabilitation and associated policy formulation and adoption. It will promote the science that underpins a risk-based approach to rehabilitation of mined land and, via interactive forums, identify the major constraints to effective remediation of such sites.

The conference presents an opportunity to put your organisation at the forefront of best practice in dealing with mined land rehabilitation sites. It offers a more economically sustainable approach that does not compromise human and environmental health. Mine Rehab 2019 provides a way forward for dealing with the legacy of our mining past.

The 2019 Conference will attract:

  • policy- and law-makers
  • mine and land owners
  • environmental contamination consultants
  • anyone with a professional interest in mined land rehabilitation
  • regulatory officers involved in the mining sector, policy development and implementation
  • early-career researchers, PhD students, and Masters and Honours graduates
  • individuals and organisations representing the mining community and associated supply chains
  • researchers and research institutes
  • anybody from the broader community who wants to learn about or have a say in how we deal with the environmental impacts of mining.

We anticipate 300+ delegates this year, making it one of the largest mined land rehabilitation conferences in Australia.

DATES: 19–21 June 2019
