This report examines the factors influencing integration of post-mining lands into pastoral properties in the Bowen Basin in Australia, and explores a stakeholder workshop process for gaining consensus about priority issues and acceptable solutions in a hypothetical mine closure scenario. Stakeholder planning workshops about post-mining land use with a mock-up case study mine are described in this report. The research shows that group processes and engagement among diverse stakeholders can lead to broad agreement about factors relevant to land use decisions and about options for future land uses at a case study/ individual site level.
