Newmont – Woodcutters Rehabilitation

The Woodcutters mine site in Australia’s Northern Territory is a former lead-zinc mine that was decommissioned in 1999. As the owner and operator of the non-operational site, Newmont has undertaken decommissioning, rehab (rehabilitation) and monitoring activities since acquiring the site in 2002 as a result of the Normandy acquisition.

Under the “Woodcutters Agreement,” Newmont  works with traditional owners – the Kungarakan and Warai people – to undertake closure activities that support the goal to hand over the land to the traditional owners once all agreed-upon closure criteria and objectives have been met. The agreement also details our local employment, training and stakeholder engagement commitments.
