By Darren Murphy

The expectations of internal and external stakeholders from an environment, social, governance (ESG) perspective continue to rise. AusIMM’s Integrated Mine Closure Professional Certificate presents an opportunity for resource professionals to deep dive into the key components of this important process and recognise the compelling business case for Integrated Mine Closure (IMC) that can realise significant value to operations.  

This Professional Certificate introduces Integrated Mine Closure (IMC), the role of environmental and socio-economic knowledge base and the importance of a shared closure vision; the criticality of social transition and leaving a positive legacy to successful IMC;  the importance of closure integration into Life of Mine planning and multi-disciplinary ownership of IMC. 

You will learn to:

  • Identify and assess closure risks and opportunities to reduce risk and realise value; 
  • Recognise that the execution of closure plans requires the same project management rigour as the original mine development;
  • Explain success criteria and associated monitoring and maintenance programs to drive relinquishment.  

Through improved knowledge of the Integrated Mine Closure process, learners will be able to more proactively contribute to planning and execution as part of their normal roles, rapidly upskill in this important process, add more value to your role, and use the increased knowledge as a springboard to higher level opportunities within your company.

ICMM’s ‘Integrated Mine Closure: Good Practice Guide’ has been drawn upon in the development of this course. AusIMM would like to acknowledge the contributors to that guide, in particular the ICMM team, their members and consultants.
