The study aimed to identify novel approaches used by consortium member companies to integrate social dimensions into closure planning. Identifying these approaches promotes knowledge exchange between the companies, and provides direction for future research and innovation for mine closure performance. We found that the companies are at various stages of integrating environmental, social and economic factors into planning (at all stages of the mine lifecycle).
