MMG transfer focuses on rehabilitation

1 March 2017

Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive, Ian Macfarlane, today applauded the decision by MMG to transfer its Century zinc mine in north west Queensland to Century Mine Rehabilitation Project Pty Ltd as a clear and practical example of MMG’s commitment to the environment and the local economy.

“I congratulate MMG on its decision to transfer the mine with not only a focus on reviving the region’s economy but also to the benefit of the environment,” Mr Macfarlane said.

“It provides a new economic opportunity for the mine while also supporting a dedicated rehabilitation plan.”

The announcement is a win win for rehabilitation and the region – the mine will be given a new life with substantial zinc still to be extracted while the rehabilitation plan will be in place for the end of the mine’s life.
