Wanted: resourceful Students to revolutionise Rehabilitation

Two scholarships worth up to $35,000 a year are up for grabs for students working on innovative ways to improve land rehabilitation at Queensland coal mines.

The Coal Minesite Rehabilitation Trust Fund, hosted by the Queensland Resources Council (QRC), is calling for student applications for its 2022 postgraduate scholarship program.
 
The Fund supports up to two students a year to pursue postgraduate studies in environmental management at any university in Queensland.
 
QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said today the industry needs more world-class mine rehabilitation experts to help innovate and lead the resources sector’s practices on an ongoing basis.
 
“Responsible land rehabilitation is central to the business of sustainable mining in Queensland,” Mr Macfarlane said.
 
“While mine rehabilitation is highly regulated, better implemented and more accountable than ever before, we need ongoing research to fill knowledge gaps and identify future issues to give stakeholders the confidence that our industry can effectively manage and reduce our impacts on the environment.”
 
Mr Macfarlane said resources companies understand the critical importance of maintaining leading practice environmental standards.
 
“These industry-funded, mine rehabilitation scholarships benefit individual students but also benefit our industry because we need innovation and fresh thinking to help us continually improve our practices,” he said.
 
“The resources sector is in fact one of the biggest supporters of research in this area in the country.”
 
Central Queensland University (CQU) student, and 2014 scholarship recipient Leigh Stitz, now Executive Officer of the Fitzroy Partnership for River Health, dedicated her postgraduate project to investigating the importance of Macroinvertebrates in freshwater tropical systems, with a particular focus on the Fitzroy catchment.
 
“My studies concluded that the existing biological indicators used to measure waterway health require the development of locally derived water quality guidelines and trigger values,” Ms Stitz said.
 
“The QRC scholarship allowed me to take my research to another level with a particular view to improving regional waterway monitoring, enabling me to support Central Queensland industry and the community.
 
“Using the knowledge I gained during my studies continues to benefit the industry in my current position managing the Fitzroy Partnership for River Health.”
 
Mr Macfarlane said the resources industry works hard to minimise the impacts of its activities on the environment, from the planning stages of a project right through to well beyond its actual mine life.
 
"Managed well, land can be used after the completion of mining for a range of uses such as agriculture, native ecosystems and community development,” he said.
 
“We hope the research conducted by postgraduate students involved in this program will make a significant contribution to the further understanding, and achievement, of sustainable land management outcomes.”
 
Applications close Friday, 10 December 2021. Further information on the 2022 Coal Minesite Rehabilitation Scholarships is available here.

GlobalData: Mining Companies need to become Leaders in ESG


Metals and minerals will play an important role in the global transition to a greener future. Mining executives now have a choice: let environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues run them out of business or use it as an opportunity to become tomorrow's leader, says GlobalData.

The data and analytics company notes that companies need to act immediately and decisively so every mining company becomes a leader in ESG, including outlining a comprehensive ESG action plan and creating a dedicated sustainability team to deliver these outcomes.

The leading data and analytics company has outlined an ESG framework in its latest report, ESG in Mining The framework notes that companies must take a holistic approach to sustainability that addresses all three of its major aspects: environmental, social, and governance.

Luke Gowland, Analyst at GlobalData, commented: “ESG issues are the most important of this decade - with citizens, governments, regulators and the media demanding action from corporations to address these challenges. Mining companies must perform well in all of the 12 aspects of GlobalData’s ESG framework: being a laggard in any one of these will hurt brand reputation and, ultimately, profits.”

Gowland continues: “It is easy to find examples of lackluster governance in mining but much harder to find exemplary case studies. Companies that perform poorly in environmental and social issues likely do so due to poor governance. In the wake of COVID-19, corporate boards need to ensure their company performs financially while keeping ESG at the top of the agenda. Corporate boards must have diverse representation to achieve this or risk facing voting action from their shareholders. By appointing a more diverse range of directors to a board and empowering them, a company is more likely to be in tune with its employee base, a broad range of stakeholders, and society.

GloalData notes that early engagement with all stakeholders, including employees, shareholders and local communities is key for mining companies to excel at ESG.
