Calendar celebrates mine rehabilitation success
The 2006 Return to a Natural Environment: Rehabilitated Mine Lands Calendar provides photographic testimony to the environmental stewardship of mining companies and the success stories of 12 mine sites in Ontario.
The calendar graphically illustrates how old mines in all parts of the province are converted into wildlife habitats, natural landscapes, golf courses, parklands and recreational trails along with other features. Mining is a temporary land use; responsible rehabilitation, as is depicted in this 2006 chronological publication, has dramatic and exciting restorative powers.
Every year, mining companies in Ontario make significant investments to return former mines to a natural environment. In 2004, Ontario mining companies invested $85 million in environmental protection, environmental improvement and pollution prevention.
Mining companies, the Ontario Mining Association, educational institutions and government collaborated through a task force under the leadership of the Ontario Mineral Industry Cluster Council (OMICC) to produce the calendar. More than 200,000 copies are being distributed.
