A researcher with 30 years of experience in mine rehabilitation, says landholders suffering the impacts of abandoned mines have been left in a regulatory ‘no man’s land’. The University of Queensland’s Corinne Unger is a Churchill scholar who’s studied the way other countries deal with mines after their closure, and she believes a national approach is urgently needed. She spoke to Charlie McKillop after giving evidence to a recent federal Senate inquiry, about an issue that she says will become increasingly apparent as more mines near the end of their lives.
