dc.description.abstractThis article explains how and why the statutory requirements for mining rehabilitation have failed to serve Queensland in the past and how the Environmental Protection (Chain of Responsibility) Amendment Act 2016, Qld, attempts to address the problems. By placing responsibility for mine rehabilitation on mining companies as well as ‘related persons’, the 2016 Qld Act opens up new enforcement opportunities. The approach Queensland has taken contrasts with measures recently adopted in Western Australia. The strengths and weaknesses of the two different approaches are compared.
