Résumé
The vegetation rehabilitation of iron ore waste dumps and industrial site waste is an important part of completion criteria for mining, especially as legislation requirements increase. There are limited guidelines currently available for companies to achieve these rehabilitation goals and those that exist tend to be anecdotally rather than scientifically based. Some scientific studies have been carried out using topsoil and seeding as restoration treatments, but very little information is available on their usefulness in the arid zone. This study assesses the outcomes of a range of rehabilitation projects carried out in the Middleback Ranges, South Australia.
