Mine Site Demonstration

Erosion Control and Rehabilitation of Mine Sites in NSW


The Hills Bark Blower has run events demonstrating compost blankets application as an effective rehabilitation and erosion control method on Mine Sites in NSW. This project was supported by NSW Government as part of Waste Less, Recycle More, funded from the waste levy.
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 a natural 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.

We understand every mine site is different, with unique soil and re-vegetation challenges. We work with the team on site at the mine to find the best solution for retrieving areas impacted by activity in the past, and bringing it back to a thriving natural ecological community. Seed selection, soil amelioration, and site preparation for Ecoablanket.
