posted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by Wayne BoydWayne Boyd
"This research was aimed at developing a statistically rigorous prognostic success assessment protocol for evaluating ecosystem rehabilitation. The protocol needs to be repeatable, adaptable and simple enough to be easily applied across a diversity of mining operations and sites ... A five class success rating and valuation was developed and the assessment protocol was demonstrated and tested using real mine data, as a case study from the Bowen Basin, Queensland, Australia"--Abstract.
