Mine Closure has become an internationally recognized conference series since it was established in 2006. The 10th International Conference on Mine Closure will offer a multidisciplinary global forum for exchanging views and developing capacity, to ensure that new mines are designed with closure in mind, and old sites are closed economically, while minimizing environmental and societal impacts.

This is the second time Mine Closure returns to Canada, after a very successful conference in 2011 at Lake Louise that attracted almost 600 delegates. Following on that success, the conference organizers have again partnered with the British Columbia Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation (BC TRCR). Mine Closure 2015 will be held in conjunction with TRCR’s 39th Annual BC Mine Reclamation Symposium. The joint event will offer delegates a stellar technical program featuring the latest scientific developments, as well as insightful discussions on the most pressing issues.

CLRA/ACRSD: Building a nation-wide community of practitioners to reclaim and remediate environmentally-disturbed lands and waterways.

The Canadian Land Reclamation Association/Association canadienne de réhabilitation des sites dégradés (CLRA/ACRSD) is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1975. The Association encourages personal and corporate involvement where reclamation or rehabilitation of disturbed lands is planned or implemented.

Its members meet annually for technical discussion, information exchange and personal interaction. Local activities occur in Alberta, Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec where there are active provincial chapters.

The CLRA/ACRSD provides its members with up-to-date technical information through the publication of its newsletters, the magazine Canadian Reclamation and proceedings of its annual conferences. These publications allow the organization to have an informal, instructional role in the decision-making processes of reclamation/rehabilitation projects and to act as a forum for the dissemination of ideas and information pertinent to reclamation activities.

If you or your company are involved with or interested in reclamation of land or watercourses, environmental guidelines and/or enforcement, decommissioning, research (products, methods or equipment), or education, consider becoming a member of Canada's only national association concerned solely with reclamation.
