Coalpac understands that mining impacts the natural environment and Coalpac has a longstanding commitment and track record of successful rehabilitation of mined areas. Proper and progressive rehabilitation using native species has been successful at both mines, and is central to the core business principles, the continuation of the licence to operate, and ensuring Coalpac maintain and build trust within the local community.
Coalpac’s successful rehabilitation processes include aerial seeding, a helicopter based process which provides consistent seed delivery over undulating terrain and ensures outstanding results. The preparation of the rehabilitation area is done with a planned and methodical approach. Water management is an important aspect considered early in the planning process to achieve a successful rehabilitation outcome. Other aspects considered include seed retention, application and quality, topsoil and subsoil units, cover quality and topographic design.
