Mine Rehabilitation

Depending on the climatic zone and soil type, soil carbon levels worldwide are declining at a phenomenal rate. The impact of overgrazing, deforestation, over-cultivation and excessive application of soluble nitrogen has led to the breakdown of stable soil humus. Over time this has led to declining water holding and nutrient capacity of the soil.

Soil Systems Australia reverses this process by applying both practical and scientific steps that increase root mass and rhizosphere activity, increase diversity and match the nutritional requirements of the crop or pasture to the soil type. By close monitoring, total carbon levels in the soil are increased leading to more stabilised landscapes and catchments.

With chemical and heavy metal contamination now becoming a serious worldwide problem, practical solutions to rehabilitation are required. Through soil management and phyto-remediation, Soil Systems Australia has had extensive experience.
