Event description
Planning for Post-Mining Land Use and Economic Transition

About this Event

This presentation will summarise the processes that have been used to plan for post-mining land use and economic transition, and lessons learned from recent studies. It will draw on the findings of a benchmarking study, and recent studies in Australia to:

  • Define the three key elements required to inform a post-mining land use and economic transition strategy.
  • Provide examples of the information gathered from the studies and the opportunities identified.
  • Discuss the importance of a coordinated cross-discipline strategy to enable opportunities to be realised.
  • Highlight some of the barriers which may need to be overcome and possible options for overcoming them.

This presentation will be given by:

Donna Pershke

Director - Pershke Consulting

Donna has over thirty years’ experience in environmental consulting with the last twenty-four spent predominantly consulting to the mining sector. She started work as a graduate at Dames & Moore in the UK and moved to join Dames & Moore in Perth in 1997. Between 1997 and 2015, Donna continued to work with Dames & Moore and its successor company URS, and in 2015, set up her own business; Pershke Consulting.

Over her career, Donna has been involved in a wide variety of projects and roles, including mine closure planning, environmental management systems, strategic infrastructure planning, sustainability strategy and business development. Each of these roles has contributed to her appreciation of the various elements required to pilot an operational mine or mining area to a productive post-mining land use.

Donna has been instrumental in developing an approach to post-mining land use transition planning that bridges the gap between the traditional approach to mine closure regulation, and economic development and land use planning processes. She is contributing her expertise in this regard to the Cooperative Research Centre for Transition in Mining Economies (CRC-TiME).
