First Announcement – mineclosure2018!

This is the new homepage for mineclosure2018 and under construction. More informations will be available soon.


The 12th International Conference on Mine Closure will offer a multidisciplinary global forum for exchanging views and developing capacity; to ensure that new mines are operated with closure in mind, and old sites are closed economically, while minimising environmental and social impacts.

The conference will be held from 3rd to 7th September 2018 in Leipzig, Germany.

Leipzig is located in the centre of one of Europe’s largest mine closure programmes with plenty of examples of mine rehabilitation that offer new chances for regional development.
