Rio Tinto Alcan – Mine site rehabilitation monitoring

Rio Tinto Rehabilitation

For the second consecutive year, Biotropica botanists have assisted Rio Tinto Alcan (RTA) in Weipa to undertake the annual rehabilitation monitoring programme.  The work consisted of site specific surveys using a range of methodologies to assess the success of RTA’s rehabilitation works.  415 sites across the Weipa mine sites were surveyed over a 4 month period.  Biotropica scientists are now assisting RTA in the data manipulation, reporting and advising on the findings of surveys.
