Silica sand mining by Kemerton Silica Sand Pty Ltd. in the Kemerton region in Australia’s south-west, is followed by rehabilitation of mined lands into conservation areas after ore extraction is complete. Successful rehabilitation to a natural structure is involving first studies into what type of wetland (like the wetland riparian vegetation structure) is typical of the area and hence, acceptable as a rehabilitation outcome. Studies are focussing on both understanding natural wetland structure, the dynamics and environmental drivers, as well as understanding how rehabilitation efforts are achieving desirable rehabilitation outcomes.
