Mine rehabilitation – Corinne Unger

Corinne Unger is a Churchill Fellow and an international expert on mine rehabilitation and closure planning, abandoned mine management and post-mining land use.

After a distinguished career within the public service, she has taken up study for a doctorate at the University of Queensland. She reports that there is a growing interest in the closure of operating mines and the rehabilitation of abandoned mines in Australia and Queensland. A collection of her publications and other related material appears on a separate page, which is at an early stage of construction.

Ms Unger in her capacity as Senior Research Officer, Sustainable Minerals Institute, was interviewed by Wendy Harmer on an ABC Breakfast (Sydney) program on abandoned mines on 17 February 2017. The audio file is now available.
