Acceptable erosion rates for mine waste landform rehabilitation modelling in the Pilbara, Western Australia

Abstract : A major concern for rehabilitation and closure of waste landforms on mine sites is their long-term erosion stability. In Western Australia, regulators are requesting landforms remain ‘stable’ for hundreds of years or the ‘long-term’. Therefore, assessing a landform’s potential long-term erosion stability requires the use of erosion and/or landform evolution models and defensible erosion thresholds below which rehabilitation landform designs are considered acceptably erosion resistant or ‘stable’.
