How we rehabilitate and transition mines to a post mine land use is wholly integrated to our life of mine planning process. Land management and rehabilitation eﬀorts are aligned with leading practice and are undertaken in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, with an integrated approach to planning the rehabilitation and closure of our mines that commences at the feasibility phase and continues throughout the life of the asset. Physical and transition risks are mitigated through internal and external networking, working groups and assurance activities undertaken at the LOD 1, 2 and 3 levels (integrated 3 level Line of Defence assurance program).
Our Rehabilitation and Mine Closure Standard guides our approach to ensure consistency across the business. This requires every site to have a set of land outcome documents including a plan for closure, mapped disturbance and a rehabilitation cost model with an annual budget for progressive mine rehabilitation.
Progressive rehabilitation is a focus during the operations phase of the mine lifecycle to minimise the mining footprint, assist with understanding and evaluating closure risks, identify knowledge gaps and inform research and development programs, and reﬁne closure provision estimates.

Evolution is pursuing construction of a leading-edge low-cost, renewable energy storage in Queensland to contribute to the state-wide target of 50% renewables by 2030 and to support our local communities beyond the life of the mine.
