Glencore rehabilitation earns government certification

20 December 2019

Glencore’s central Queensland open cut coal operation, Rolleston, has received government certification for another 166 hectares of rehabilitated mined land.

The Queensland government’s support means Rolleston has certification for almost 400 hectares of its rehabilitation, representing almost 40 per cent of the total amount of mined land.

Rolleston last received certification for 220 hectares in 2018, some of which is now being grazed by prized Charbray cattle

Rolleston operations manager Andrew McDonald stated that the land at Rolleston was previously used for grazing cattle, and they intend on achieving this land use post-mining.
