Mine site rehabilitation

An effective revegetation strategy starts with a comprehensive soil analysis. Only then can a site-specific solution be developed for optimal rehabilitation and soil stabilisation. This case study shows the necessary steps to minimise dust and stabilise soil on batters around a typical mine operation.

Growing vegetation on disturbed, depleted soil is almost impossible unless great care is taken to develop a strategy where all variables are considered. For extremely poor soils, hydromulching alone will not be effective. A tailored ameliorate program is essential for successful root establishment and development for optimal vegetation coverage.

Equally important is how the solution is then applied. Mine specific HydroRigs® are the most effective and viable application equipment for vegetating vast expanses of land quickly and easily, such as batters found on most mine sites.
