Anglo American has announced plans to invest more than $162m to rehabilitate its mining operations in Australia over the next five years.
The company has five metallurgical coal mines in Central Queensland, alongside two open-cut and three underground mines.
Anglo American will spend around $83m on rehabilitation at the open cut Dawson Mine near Moura, and another $40m at the Capcoal open cut mine near Middlemount.
Anglo American Metallurgical Coal business CEO Tyler Mitchelson said: “Over the next five years (2019-2023), we’re investing more than $162m on industry-leading rehabilitation activities across our five mine sites.
“We continue to innovate and pursue best practice mine rehabilitation across our business, and this approach is already delivering outstanding results.”
