At New Acland we practice progressive rehabilitation. At any one time, only 10% of the leased area is actively mined. Almost 650 hectares of land have been rehabilitated at New Acland, with much of this already being returned to cattle grazing land.

We appreciate that we are the custodians of large parcels of land and have an obligation to care for it and ensure that following mining operations we return the land to a productive use post mining. We believe that mining and agriculture can sustainably coexist.

We believe it is our responsibility to be a key partner in and with our local communities, investing money and time to support vital community organisations. And why wouldn’t we? They are our communities too. We contribute in a number of ways.


New Hope is committed to the sustainable development of all mining lease areas under its management. Best practice environmental planning is incorporated into all phases of our projects, from development and exploration to eventual closure.
