We are responsible for managing Alcoa`s mining and refining activities in AV under 3 state agreements. The criteria for completing the rehabilitation of Alcoa`s bauxite mine in northern Jarrah Forest in the Darling Range are to be revised in accordance with Ministerial Declaration 728 issued by the Minister of the Environment in September 2006. The Liaison Group for Analysis and Management Programmes, an inter-authority group chaired by the department, conducted the review in 2014. The revised completion criteria apply to the rehabilitation, which was introduced from 2016 until it was replaced by future revisions of the criteria. The revised documentation of the closing criteria is available and is also available on the Alcoa and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions websites.
