Australia has developed some world leading practices in mine site restoration after bauxite mining (Bell 2001; Mulligan et al. 2006). Restoration techniques are underpinned by two key practices: (i) incremental rehabilitation, restoring land progressively to forest after it has been mined out (Fourie & Tibbett 2006; Koch 2007a) and (ii) integrating mining with restoration, a practice that requires joint planning by both ecological and mining engineers (Hinz 1992; Koch 2007a).
