The Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) is calling on people to share their expertise to help manage and rehabilitate the State’s abandoned mines.

Expressions of interest are currently being sought from anyone interested in being appointed to the Mining Rehabilitation Advisory Panel (MRAP)

Established under the Mining Rehabilitation Fund Act 2012, MRAP is a five-person statutory panel which provides independent advice to the DMP about matters concerning the Mining Rehabilitation Fund (MRF).

This includes advice on identifying abandoned mines, prioritising sites for rehabilitation, proposed expenditure and offering guidance on the MRF’s administration.

Tthe MRAP provides valuable independent support to the department.  Members of MRAP play a vital role in helping to increase improved community and safety outcomes throughout Western Australia by managing and rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines legacy.

We urge anyone who is interested to submit an expression of interest.  MRAP members must have experience in the management of mining operations, land rehabilitation practices, environmental, financial or legal matters or natural resource planning and management.

For more information on how to apply, visit the MRF Website for the expression of interest.
