Newmont Asia Pacific’s Closure and, Reclamation Group facilitates the delivery of Newmont’s Closure
Standards throughout Newmont’s Australasian operations. This involves facilitating high quality
rehabilitation and decommissioning activities at Newmont’s closed operations, and through coordination of
closure planning and implementation activities at active operations. A key factor for achieving successful
closure processes is building and maintaining an effective team of skilled earthworks operators who are able
to contribute, and influence, throughout the design and implementation process, build diverse experience in
closure works, and enjoy what they do while maintaining high levels of safety performance and productivity.
This paper describes the processes and approaches that Newmont and its contractors take to establish and
maintain high quality teams of earthmoving and consulting specialists as a critical part of the closure
