Are you OK with footing the bill?

Texas Silver mine. Queensland Nickel. And now possibly even Rio Tinto’s Blair Athol.

How do we make sure mining companies pay to properly rehabilitate mine sites and avoid environmental harm, in accordance with their environmental obligations; and don’t leave you as a taxpayer to foot the bill?

Join EDO Qld and a range of speakers as we explore how the environmental legacies of mines are currently regulated, the impacts this is having on Queensland, and the new Chain of Responsibility Act.
