The Mine Land Rehabilitation Authority is an independent body established on 30 June 2020 under amendments to the Mineral Resources (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 (Vic).
These amendments are a Victorian government response to a recommendation by the 2015-16 Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry.
The Mine Land Rehabilitation Authority replaces the Latrobe Valley Mine Rehabilitation Commissioner who has been monitoring mine rehabilitation in the Latrobe Valley since June 2017.
The authority continues to deliver the role and functions of the Commissioner in overseeing the implementation of the Latrobe Valley Regional Rehabilitation Strategy by public sector bodies and mine licensees, and adopts additional functions in relation to registering, monitoring, and owning declared mine land post-closure.
The Mine Land Rehabilitation Authority brandmark is made up of a stylised shovel and sprout that have been combined to create a mark that conveys the transition from working mine to rehabilitated landform.
