Mine Site Demonstration

Erosion Control and Rehabilitation of Mine Sites in NSW

Follow up field day


As a part of an EPA Waste Less, Recycle More Organics Market Development grant, The Hills Bark Blower carried out a compost blanket erosion control demonstration to show how this application can benefit Mine Sites in NSW.
Specified Compost Blankets are an effective method for stopping erosion in its tracks and rehabilitating damaged sites. The Hills Bark Blower Ecoblanket replaces the natural layer of humus that already protects undisturbed soil. Injected with an adhesive substance, the compost has increased structural integrity. Ecoblanket is easily installed in a one step, low impact pneumatic process that can conform to about any terrain.

The event occurred on November 2nd 2018, and was attended by representatives from various mines sites in the Hunter Region and supported by The Hunter Coal Environment Group. A special thank you tthe IECA for their communication assistance as well.

Next Step:
The next step in the this project is to run a field day, evaluating and observing the long term success of the Ecoblanket method on a few site.
We will be advertising further details of this event in 2019.
