ILUKA MINE VISIT

On Friday, 24 May, employees of the Iluka mines Environmental Department in Ouyen, came for a fact finding visit. They had heard about the success at Neds Corner Station of the many successful ideas and revegetation methods that have been adopted over the last four years. They were very impressed with what had been achieved to date and have taken away ideas to trial in their own projects.

Rhyarla Seed Collectors, Bev and Tony Bingley accompanied them, as they have collected seed pre mine opening and are now giving it back to rehabilitate the Kulwin mine.

During the visit both parties gained more knowledge of ways to rehabilitate areas.

The Neds Corner Station staff feel proud that their achievements with the revegetation works are being recognised, and that their knowledge is being sought after by many groups in the wider community.
