“BMA is committed to its responsibilities to rehabilitate the land within its mining leases, and we continue to collaborate with the Department on further progressive certification.“Queenslanders want to know that miners’ take their responsibilities to the environment seriously.” Queensland Resources Council (QRC) chief executive Ian Macfarlane also congratulated BMA and Anglo American after the certifications were announced. “Last year, the QRC worked with the Palaszczuk Government on significant reforms to the system for the rehabilitation of mines and the development of a financial provisioning scheme for the whole resources sector in Queensland,” Macfarlane said.
