Rehabilitation & Biodiversity
The overall rehabilitation goal is to generate enduring land value, including both ecological value (e.g. biological diversity and other environmental values) and agricultural value (i.e. the ability to produce agricultural goods).
Rehabilitation activities at Cadia Valley Operations (CVO) aims to generate sustainable landforms at the mine site and on CHPL-owned land by rehabilitating mine disturbed lands to:
As one of the largest landholders in the Central West, Newcrest recognises it has the opportunity to create a production and conservation landscape on a scale presently unobtainable in such a highly modified landscape. The works undertaken by Newcrest have the ability to provide an ecologically sustainable and productive landscape for future generations.
Progressive rehabilitation will be undertaken throughout the life of the project, where practicable.
