We're using drones to collect rehabilitation performance information
During the 2017 financial year, we commenced field trials using drones to collect rehabilitation performance information at our Worsley Alumina operation.
By combining remote sensing techniques with traditional survey methods we have been able to increase the frequency of data collection, which provides a more accurate picture of our activities.
This will enable us to plan our rehabilitation performance on a landscape-wide basis and develop an integrated rehabilitation monitoring program.
We have also progressed reviews of the rehabilitation completion criteria at both Worsley Alumina and GEMCO to ensure rehabilitation works are aligned with legal and closure commitments.
The outcomes from the drone trials will form part of the reviews, which are due to be completed in FY18.
